On Saturday 1st July, 3 young people from our parish (Tobi, Dumebi and Ann) completed a sponsored climb of mount Snowdon in Wales along with Fr Sean and two other group leaders, Jemmima and Stephanie. This was part of their efforts to raise money to attend World Youth day in Portugal.
They took the Llanberis path up the mountain which is 14.5 KM long! The bottom of the mountain was fair weathered, warm and sunny. The middle of the mountain was incredibly steep and tested everyones resolve but they persevered. As they neared the top they entered the clouds, where the temperature dropped, the wind increased, and the visibility reduced significantly. Every now and then a big gust of wind would lift up the clouds revealing the beautiful scenes of the valleys below. There was great satisfaction upon finally reaching the summit of the highest mountain in Wales. The work was not finished however, as the journey down hill is, surprisingly, perhaps the hardest part on the legs.
A massive thank you to everyone who has sponsored Tobi, Dumbebi and Ann for this climb!
If you would like to support them in their fundraising efforts please give your donation in a clearly marked envelope.
