We would like to congratulate the hardy team of HVPD hikers that conquered Snowdon last weekend to raise money for our charity partner, Mind in Salford.
The team – made up of Jordan Edmenson, Norbert Keck, Chris Hopley, Stephen Green, Joanna Szolyga, David Banks, Sarah Liu, Kelly Thorley, Andrea Csanyi (and some of their partners and children) – completed the 7.5-mile trek up the Rhyd Ddu path to the top of Snowdon on Saturday 17th August 2019.
During the climb, they tackled the rocky and wet terrain, and even the occasional bog! Most team members described the dramatic ridge walk section as the most treacherous part of their journey, due to the steep drop on the side. They also braved cold temperatures and the wind as they climbed the last rocky section before finally reaching the summit for a well-deserved break!
The struggle didn’t end there however, as they faced the whole journey again in reverse by going back down the same route!
This route usually takes about 6-7 hours to complete. However, a special mention must go to our Project Manager, David Banks, and Commercial Manager, Joanna Szolyga, for completing the Rhyd Ddu walk in just under 3 hours! We honestly don’t know where they get their stamina from.
Also a big thank you to those who have supported the team by donating to this worthy cause.
If you’re feeling generous and would like to help us raise even more money for Mind in Salford, we’d really appreciate anything you can spare. Mind in Salford provides quality services to make positive difference to the Mental Health of the people of Salford.
