Oshi Climbs Snowdon For Clic Sargent

Six year old Oshi Baker decided to climb Mount Snowdon to raise money for CLIC Sargent.

Oshi Climbs Snowdon For Clic Sargent

Little Oshi Baker climbed the 3,560ft peak against 65mph winds in October with his dad Paul, grandad John and his cockapoo puppy Freddie. So far Oshi has raised a staggering £703 for CLIC Sargent!

Primary school teacher Paul said he and his son had decided to take on the challenge in memory of a family member who had died. He said: "Oshi was asking lots of questions, as kids do, and we got to talking about children not as fortunate as he is. We then came up with the idea of climbing Snowdon. It seemed perfect as we used to have a cottage there years ago and I did it at a young age too.

"He's very determined. I asked him what we'd do if were halfway up and it suddenly started raining hard. I said, 'would you want to turn back?' and he said, 'no we'd carry on Dad'.

"We'd like to say thank you to all those people who have supported him so far and made a donation."

Stephanie Cherington-Rimmell, Fundraising Manager for CLIC Sargent said: "£700 will make a huge difference to our work with children and young people with cancer and Oshi has shown true determination. We are grateful to everyone for getting behind Oshi and supporting his fundraising. Well done!"
