Dave heads up Snowdon - as many times in aid of charity

Created on 11/06/2021 @ 09:43
Newtown Fire Station's Manager, Dave Latham, will be heading up Snowdon as many times as he can on Saturday - all in aid of charity.

Along with a small support team, they will take on the epic challenge of climbing Snowdon, not once, but as many times as they can in 24 hours.

Other Service members will also be joining them for support throughout the event, completing their own individual challenges, whilst adhering to the current Covid-19 guidelines.

They will be undertaking the challenge in support of the Firefighters Charity, an organisation that offers specialist, lifelong support for members of the UK fire services community, which includes current and retired personnel and their families.

Station Manager Latham said: “Following the difficult times that we have all been through, the Firefighters charity needs our support more than ever.  The pandemic has meant that charity events and fundraisers have been cancelled, which has seen a significant reduction in donations being made to charity, which is one of the many reasons that has led to this fundraiser.

"This will be a huge challenge for everyone involved, but we are all very much looking forward to see how many times we can climb this mountain in the time given”.
