On Saturday, 28th June, some of our youngest fundraisers climbed Mount Snowdon for ELoH. Ten-year-olds Connie, Jemma and Zara and their mothers Ruth, Louise and Phee took on the highest mountain in Wales – and highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands – which stands at an impressive 1,085 metres above sea level.
Having known Sarah Hope and her family for years, the girls wanted to take on this special challenge to support the work of ELoH. Before the big climb the girls said that it will be “awesomely awesome” to climb a mountain with your friends and raise money to help other people. They added:“We like being able to help other people.”
Connie, Jemma, Zara and their mothers have never undergone a similar challenge before, so Ruth further explains their motivation: “Since that fateful day, the Hope family have continued to look further afield than their own considerable challenges to think of others and have been a source of incredible inspiration to us and the girls.”
Their climbing achievements are equalled by their very successful fundraising efforts: Together, the girls have managed to raise an incredible £892 – and their fundraising page is still open! Visit it hereto help them achieve their fundraising target and to show them how utterly impressed you are by the this challenge.
Thank you so much, Connie, Jemma, Zara, Ruth, Louise and Phee!
