Team take on Snowdon challenge (x 3!) for Armed Forces charity
Three men from North Wales set themselves the incredible challenge of climbing Snowdon three times in 24 hours to raise money for SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity
Carwyn Fôn, Leon Roberts and Gordon Linning took on the daring challenge on in December in aid of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, and completed the feat in just 16 and a half hours.
Leon, a former cadet RSM and Ambassador for the MPCT Bangor, and Gordon, a veteran of 7 Para RHA, suggested fundraising for SSAFA after joining Carwyn on regular hikes in Snowdonia National Park.
Says Carwyn, ‘We completed the challenge in 16 and a half hours. There was lots of moaning, groaning, aches and knee shakes, but we’re delighted that we made it up and down Snowdon three times in one day.
‘It’s widely known that charities have taken a massive hit recently due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so we’re really pleased we have been able to raise much-needed funds for SSAFA.’
Although the team have already beaten their target of raising £1,000 for SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity in Anglesey, donations are still welcome. If you would like to support them, please click here to visit their JustGiving page.
