Last weekend 29 people challenged themselves to climb to the summit of Mount Snowdon in order to raise money to support children with cancer in Yorkshire. Together they have raised over £6000 in support of Candlelighters, who support children and families in Yorkshire affected by childhood cancer.

 

Rifhat Malik, from Give a Gift said “We at Give a Gift want to thank the 29 participants who undertook the Snowdon Challenge and succeeded in reaching the summit. We are so proud at the effort & determination by all to complete this challenge to help raise vital funds for Candlelighters. We chose this challenge to show that hard work pays off and raising over £6000 was certainly no walk in the park.”
