Kathleen’s Snowdon Challenge

Words: Amy on July 22, 2017

In June 2017 I challenged myself to climb Mount Snowdon and in doing so raise money for a cause I truly believe in; Help Bristol’s Homeless.  I started volunteering with HBH because I saw they were a local community group who were committed to making a difference to homeless people’s lives and facilitating change in society.  Not just another charity, they clearly make a difference on the ground, especially with their container project and outreach services.  So to help raise money for this project, predominantly to help with the containers, I took part in a Snowdon climb through my workplace, which for me is a huge challenge – I am not ‘outdoorsy’ in the slightest!  Despite battling gale force winds and torrential rain on the day – and therefore unfortunately not making it quite to the top! – I am very proud to say I blew my target of £200, finally raising £640!  A big thank you to everyone who sponsored me, especially my Unite the Union workplace branch, to help support this great cause.  I look forward to continuing my support to HBH, though perhaps not to the same extreme for a while!
