Snowdon Walk for Charity

By Phipps and Pritchard

At the end of June one would expect lovely sunshine and blue sky’s but that’s far from what we experienced when a McCartneys team took on Snowdon on 26th June in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The day started well when the team of 11 met at the top of Llanberis Pass to start our walk on the track known as Pygg Path that leads to the summit. This is a reasonably challenging walk including established paths and rock embankments but the team took it in their stride until the mist and rain started after about 1 hour. The walk became increasingly more challenging for this group of novice walkers but the desire to achieve our goal and raise money for charity drove everyone forward reaching the summit after about 3 hours when visibility was down to about 10 metres.

The exhausted team enjoyed a warm drink in the café at the top of Snowdon before embarking on the two hour walk back down to civilisation.

Macmillan Cancer Support is our chosen charity for 2016 and a very worthwhile cause. We would welcome any additional donations to help us raise as much as we can – donations can be handed in to your local office or submitted through the just giving page at - www.justgiving.com/McCartneys-Climb-Snowdon
