A team of Fire Fighters Charity employees raised over £2,000 by climbing Snowdon in aid of us, while promoting our vital services.

Community Fundraisers Charlotte Smith and Clare Delaney were joined by Engagement Rep Andy Russell, as well as our mascot Blaze Bear, as they took on the challenge on 13 May.

The team climbed the peak via the Pyg track and descended via the Miners Track, considered to be one of the more challenging routes.

Speaking after the climb, Charlotte told us: “This was a challenge we all really wanted to succeed in. It was a personal challenge for us all, and a great opportunity to raise money for our charity.

“Working in the fundraising team means that we’re always encouraging others to plan challenges like this, and we also seen first-hand what a difference the funds raised can make, so it felt right that we did something too.

“I think that’s what kept us going, particularly on the way down when the weather changed and it all became a lot harder! We all feel really proud of the achievement.”

Fire safety supplier Illumino Ignis Ltd generously matched the team’s target of £999 which, on top of the funds raised on their page, took them over a total of £2,000.

“Our fire and rescue services are always there for us when we need them, and we as the charity are also there for them, as their health and wellbeing companion throughout their careers and into retirement,” the team say.

“We couldn’t provide the services and life-changing support without your help, so please continue to give what you can to our page.”
