  • Sponsored walk up Snowdonia

    It all started because of a man who walked into our office off the street who thought he was having a heart attack.  He was! Sam one of our First Aiders helped him until the First Responder and ambulance came.  Fortunately he was out of hospital after 4 days and back to normal.  But what would have happened if he needed more help than what we could have given him and decided a defribulator would have been a great benefit so we have decided to raise money to purchase a couple if we can.

    Both Sam and I racked our brains to think of what challenge we could do and Sam made a joke of walking up Snowdon! But the idea stuck.  We have never done anything like this and we are not the fittest of people so this will definitely be a challenge.

    We asked around the office and a lot more jumped on board even the Boss!  So with office staff and their family, friends and a few other organisations who want to help there are about 15 of us.

    Well the numbers went down but 9 people actually took part on a long and miserable day.  This was the hardest challenge we have all undertaken but we all walked up and down.  Took 6 hrs to complete but we managed to raise £800.
