Aiming even Higher!
In July, a group of intrepid climbers took on Snowdon in an attempt to raise funds for the charity. The target for the climb was £5000 and at the time of this going to press (the day after the climb)they had already smashed this and raised £6170 with donations still trickling in.

The weather could have been kinder with strong winds and some mist obscuring the views at the very top but the group all reached the summit and there was a great atmosphere of support, camaraderie and determination.
The group included the charity manager Latoya Sykes, three of the Board of trustees and several family members who access the charity with their children.
Latoya Sykes described the day as “Inspiring. We couldn’t be happier to shout out our incredible team of walking instructors from Aspire Adventures, who empowered our group of determined individuals. Through their expertise and unwavering support, they’ve enabled the group to achieve remarkable feats and exceed their own expectations.
Ascending the mighty Snowdon is no small feat, but these instructors stood by our team every step of the way, making sure every member felt safe, guided, and motivated throughout the entire climb. Their guidance and encouragement have been invaluable, giving us the confidence to reach new heights and discover the strength within ourselves”
Chair of Trustees Paul Jebb said “Being part of the team that climbed Snowdon & facing the challenge was absolutely amazing, people talking to each other, supporting each other & listening to how the charity has impacted their lives reminded us why we do what we do and how important the team’s work is”.
