Fundraisers endure storms to see Sunrise on Snowdon

A team of 12 fundraisers endured torrential rain and strong winds to complete a Sunrise on Snowdon challenge for South Yorkshire specialist centre, charity and school, Paces.

The group have so far raised over £4,000 which will go to the organisation’s work supporting children and adults with Cerebral Palsy and motor disorders.

Leaving Sheffield in the early hours of Sunday morning (4 July), as most were recovering from the England win the night before, the group travelled to Snowdon where they climbed the 3,560 feet peak as dawn broke over North Wales amidst some of the most challenging weather conditions.

Among the fundraisers were members of staff from XPO Logistics and the Paces fundraising team, led by Head of Fundraising Julie Booth who said:

“Climbing the highest peak in Wales is not easy at the best of times but trying to ascend Snowdon in the dark, with torrential rain and high winds was a challenge we all found really hard.

“We all made it though, spurred on by the impact we know the money we’ve raised will have on the children and adults we support at Paces.

“Thank you to all those who took part, including our amazing friends at XPO Logistics, and everyone who supported us.”
