Four friends, three mountains and one smashed target!
Four Cymru’s senior account manager, Kate Williams, completed the Tŷ Hafan’s Welsh3Peaks challenge last weekend, smashing her fund raising target of £1000 in the process.
On Saturday 17 June, in the baking heatwave, Kate and three friends climbed three of the highest mountains in Wales in one day: Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen-y-Fan.
The team had set themselves an ambitious target of £1000 but have since exceeded that target and they are now close to raising a £3000 for Tŷ Hafan, one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities which offers care to children and support for their families, throughout Wales.
The challenge began in the dark at 4am in Llanberis at the bottom of Snowdon with 70 teams taking part. Despite the testing conditions, the team finished in a laudable time of 17 hours.
Kate thanks everyone for their support:
“We would like to say a big thank you to everyone one who has donated towards this worthy cause and supported us. It definitely spurred us up and down the mountains and made us think of families less fortunate than us.
“So far we have smashed our original target of £1,000 and money is still coming in, for which we are very grateful. We would love to now reach £3,000 which would allow Tŷ Hafan to do even more amazing work.”
If you would like to donate towards this challenge there is still time:
