Put you friendship to the test with a giant water dunk challenge over the Thames

Got that one BFF who has always got your back? Are you as close as you really think? Prepared to put your friendship to the test? Take the ‘Backup You Need’ challenge, the ultimate friendship quiz comprising of the first ever dunk machine over the River Thames where one of you will be hoisted 20 feet in the air…higher than a double-decker bus.
If you take the plunge it could lead to you and your BFF potentially taking a plunge into the crystal clear waters on a luxury holiday with a TUI gift card worth £5,000 courtesy of Direct Line. However, if you flunk and get too many questions wrong…then your beastie will dunk. How well you know each other and work together, is all that stands between you both jetting off or one of you drying off!
Direct Line’s #backupyouneed experience is a free event to highlight the value of friendship and support. It’s all in the name of good fun and if you are brave enough and not afraid of potentially getting wet, then take part in this post carnival summer challenge. Be quick as the challenge is for one day only, taking place on Tuesday 30th August and is on a first come first served basis. To be one of the 18 pairs of friends in for a chance of winning a ‘best friend vacay,’ sign up via Eventbrite to secure a 20min slot between 2-7pm.

Remember, friendship is knowing someone who has always got your back. So don’t worry, If you fall into the Thames, your BFF will be there to pick you up and help dry you off  …after they’ve stopped laughing that is.
