Scale the heights in new charity challenge

St Ann’s Hospice fundraisers Clare Sweeney, Clare Henderson, Josie Fowler and Marie Foster

St Ann’s Hospice has launched a new challenge it hopes will help its fundraising efforts hit new peaks.

The Team St Ann’s Conquer Snowdon challenge will take place on Saturday, September 28, and organisers are hoping as many people as possible will join them.

James Davis, from the events team at St Ann’s, said: “Team St Ann’s is made up of truly incredible people who literally go the extra mile for the hospice.

“For this latest challenge, we’re hoping business colleagues, groups of friends, or fitness loving individuals will join us as part of Team St Ann’s to take on the highest mountain in Wales, whilst helping us to raise as much money as possible for our patients.

“If one of our walkers raised just £300 in sponsorship, that could fund three two-hour specialist rehabilitation sessions to help a patient maximise their mobility and independence.

“It would really make a difference to the lives of people we care for at the hospice – and I’m sure it would create lifelong memories for those completing the challenge and climbing Snowdon too.”

Those signing up to take part in the challenge will be guided every step of the way by the St Ann’s fundraising team, and will also receive a guide full of tips on how to maximise sponsorship and have fun while raising money.

They will also receive training and nutrition advice, transport to the mountain from the hospice and return travel, and will be accompanied on the day by experts from Snowdonia outdoors company, Original Outdoors, who are providing experienced mountain leaders and medics for the challenge.
