Support local charity with Snowdon climb

Unique local charity, NICE – Centre for Movement Disorders, is taking on a new venture with their 'Climb Snowdon' trek on Saturday 2 June.

NICE’s work is based on the fact that everybody has the capability to learn and develop, irrespective of their starting point. Too often, people with disabilities are assessed for what they cannot do, but NICE focuses intently on cultivating the potential and capabilities of every individual.

The ascent takes trekkers up the picturesque Pyg Track, followed by a comfortable yet dramatic descent down the Llanberis track, with spectacular landscapes all around.

The Climb Snowdon trek is a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in the NICE ‘can do’ attitude and give it a go! As a small charity, your sponsorship money can make such a significant difference, bringing movement and independence into the lives of people with conditions ranging from stroke, Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. Annie Smith, NICE Fundraiser, said:

“If we reach our target of having 50 trekkers on-board, this would raise an absolutely phenomenal £5,000 for NICE, which could help 9 stroke survivors develop their movements and confidence at a time when there is nowhere else for them to turn.”

Skanska UK are loyal supporters of NICE, having helped out with all sorts since 2016 and the team from NICE are delighted to have an enthusiastic team from the company joining them for the Snowdon trek. A spokesperson for the firm said:

“We're pleased and excited to be joining the NICE team to climb Snowdon, Wales’s highest mountain, to raise funds for this great charity. Hopefully the weather will be as kind as our generous sponsors have been."
