AWARE – the national depression charity for Northern Ireland is hosting ‘Lough Neagh in a Bubble’ onSunday 6 August – the first ever Zorbing event held on the shores of Lough Neagh. Whilst the River Lagan in Belfast is a familiar site for these giant zorbs, it has never happened on Lough Neagh before so don’t miss out on your chance to be one of the first to Zorb the Lough.


Q Radio presenter and DJ, Ibe Sesay is looking forward to participating in the challenge event. Ibe said,

“The fact that this is the first time Zorbing has taken place on Lough Neagh is what makes this event so unique. I am delighted to be involved with AWARE, they are a great charity providing excellent services across Northern Ireland educating and supporting people on the illness of depression. I would encourage anyone up for a laugh and a bit of a challenge to join me on Sunday 6 August to help raise money for AWARE whilst having some light hearted fun.”

Teresa Sloan, Director of Fundraising and Communications at AWARE said,

“Zorbing is vastly growing in popularity and is a great opportunity to get together with work colleagues, friends and family to raise money for AWARE in a fun and challenging way. Each individual is allocated to a zorb and the aim of the challenge is to achieve the greatest number of rotations.  Whilst the challenge is ideal for people in teams of 4 we will also be allocating individuals into teams on the day so it is very much open to everyone to enjoy.”
