Supporters salute dementia charity superhero with 100mph zip slide

ON the night of Stewart Black’s funeral, family and friends vowed to honour him by completing the most anticipated challenge from his bucket list.

Stewart passed away earlier this year, aged just 58, seven years after he was diagnosed with early onset vascular dementia.

He was described as a “superhero” by those who knew him thanks to his tireless campaigning and awareness work about the condition, so it was appropriate his loved ones took to the sky to take on the world’s fastest and Europe’s longest zip slide.

A group of 17 daredevils, including Stewart’s wife Megan, braved the 100mph slide at Zip World Velocity 2 in North Wales.

Megan, from Glenboig in Lanarkshire, said: “Doing the zip slide was an amazing experience that Stewart would have loved to take part in.

“I am truly grateful for 40 years of love and laughter which came in abundance throughout our life together.”

The group has already smashed its target of £5,000 in aid of Alzheimer Scotland but are continuing to fundraise at
