The Red Cross is staging its second annual Snowdon Trek on Saturday 27 June 2015 – a ten mile ascent of the highest mountain in England and Wales to raise money for the humanitarian charity.
The trek affords some of the most breath-taking views in the UK. The route follows the Llanberis Trail – one of the most popular routes to summit this mountain. With a final height of over 3,500 feet, and a total distance of around 10 miles, the day will involve 6-8 hours hiking.
Kilmeny Payling, completed the trek in 2013, and said:
“I love doing charity challenges – they are good fun, you meet nice people, and raise money for great causes. Snowdon was something very different to what I have done before but I enjoyed every step up – and down!”
Community Fundraiser for the Red Cross, Max Newton, said:
“We’re so grateful for the fantastic efforts of everyone, who take on these challenges to raise funds to support our work.
“The sponsorship money raised will to help people whose lives have been affected by crises and disasters, large and small, in the UK and overseas.”
