Five Lifetimers braved very tough conditions to raise charity funds at the weekend.
James Fisher, Luke Worthy, Charlie Parker, Joe Musson and Danny North took part in the 2017 Invesco Perpetual Snowdon Challenge, raising much-needed cash for the Youth Adventure Trust.
After the gruelling two-day event, the five Lifetimers received the following, lovely message from the Trust:
“I am hoping that by now you are all feeling a huge sense of achievement, even if your legs are still a bit sore! Snowdon gave us all some challenging weather conditions to deal with, and you all still came through smiling at the end. I just wanted to say a very heartfelt thank you for taking on the challenge, now in it’s tenth year and for raising such an incredible amount of money.
“£118,000 from this year’s 30 teams will mean that 35 vulnerable young people will be able to participate in our programme, helping them to transform their lives.
“Yesterday we received an email from one of our young people who has some challenges of her own and has just finished our programme:
“‘I enjoyed the activities we did because they were really fun and made me learn stuff, like when we were abseiling down a cliff I learnt that I don’t have to be afraid because as it got close I was crying, but I still did it and it was great. I have made loads of new friends there from lots of other schools and still talk to some of them and it has made me a bigger person so I just want to say thanks.’
“On behalf of everyone at Youth Adventure Trust and all our young people – a huge thank you.”
