Ain’t no mountain high enough!

A fearless group of primary school staff hiked up Mount Snowdon during half term, raising over £2,300 for children and young people with cancer.

Ain’t no mountain high enough!

The team from Phoenix Community Primary School in Kent pulled on their hiking boots and trekked up Wales’ highest mountain to raise money for children and young people with cancer, and their families.

The group had been toying with the idea of hiking up Mount Snowdon for a while, so as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month approached, they decided to bite the bullet.

The team were led by Shaun King, an avid fundraiser and supporter of CLIC Sargent. In the run up to their challenge, Shaun wittily joked: “What training?”, when the fundraising team wished the group luck with their preparation!

As the intrepid team made their way down the mountain Shaun got in touch to say: “We’re on our way down! It’s been hard going but well worth the pain.”

Thank you 

CLIC Sargent Area Fundraising Manager Hannah Auer said: “Thank you Team Phoenix for going the extra mile. With or without training, you did amazingly well to conquer Mount Snowdon.

"I’ve always wanted to take on a challenge like this, so if you have any top tips for trekking, I may just follow in your footsteps!”
