A street-length water slide will be coming to Colchester town centre this summer - the perfect opportunity for daredevils to make a splash and support a worthy cause.

Colchester Borough Council has teamed up with Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens to organise this show-stopping fundraising event.

With the support of Essex County Council, they will arrange for the SlideRider inflatable slide to a street in the town centre this summer.

You will have the chance to plunge head-first down the water slide and raise money for research into cures and kinder treatments for children’s cancers at the same time.

Gemma Turpin, Cancer Research UK Event Manager, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with Colchester Borough Council again and are working together to make SlideRider a fun and exciting activity that the whole family can do together.

Cllr Annie Feltham, Portfolio Holder for Communities and Leisure at Colchester Borough Council, said: “I’m very excited by these plans, Colchester is the perfect place to host Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens’ giant water slide.
