Five intrepid young Lifetimers are all set for a 9hopefully not wet) weekend in Wales!
Luke Worthy, James Fisher, Joe Musson, Charlie Parker and Danny North all face a tough challenge – but for a very worthy cause.
The quintet have signed up to take part in the 2017 Invesco Perpetual Snowdon Challenge, and they are travelling to Wales on Friday afternoon (September 15) and will be pitching their tent ahead of the charity trek.
Lifetime director William Bottomley was on hand to help four of our Lifetimers with their bags (see picture above) as they waited for their fifth member, Luke, to arrive.
Now in its 10th year, the Invesco Perpetual Challenge has moved to the beautiful setting of Snowdonia.
On day one, teams will take on three Welsh Peaks, hiking 27 kilometres and hitting the summits of the mighty Snowdon, Glyder Fawr and Glyder Fach.
Day two will see the teams swapping hiking boots for cycling helmets and undertaking a 47km mountain bike trail, followed by a 5km canoe around the Llyn Peris reservoir.
Every team have been asked to raise £3,300 – the cost of sending just one child on the Youth Adventure Trust programme. For every team who raises the cash to take part in the challenge, one young person will be given the opportunity to take part in the Trust’s outdoor activities, helping them to: reach their full potential; learn valuable life skills; build confidence and self-esteem; and make a measurable difference to their lives.
Says trainee financial planner Luke: “Here at Lifetime we are committed to helping people live the lives they want – and this commitment extends beyond the office and our clients. We also strive to give something back to the community, something we have achieved through our referral scheme, which has seen almost £30,000 given to hospices since its inception.
“We are really excited about taking part in the Invesco Perpetual Snowdon Challenge – and raising funds for the Youth Adventure Trust.”
