A 100 metre water slide is on its way to Sheffield city centre this summer.

The giant inflatable slide will be set up in Howard Street on Saturday, July 9 as a fundraiser for Yorkshire Cancer Research.

Users will speed down the slide on a lilo for £5 a go.

Tickets for the event, which runs from 10am until 6pm, are now on sale.

It is the first time a giant water slide will have been brought to the city.

Louise Robinson, event organiser, said: “We’re thrilled Sheffield is hosting our first ever Slip and Slide event for Yorkshire Cancer Research. We’ve ordered the sunshine and think it will be a fantastic day for everyone involved.

“All the money raised will help us save more lives in Yorkshire by raising awareness of cancer and how to prevent it, promoting screening programmes to increase early detection and funding innovative research projects, from diagnosis to end-of-life care.”
