Snowdon night hike raises £5.7k for cerebral palsy charity

A team from cerebral palsy charity Stick ‘n’ Step has conquered Wales’ highest mountain, reaching the summit of Snowdon at dawn in time to see the sunrise.

The sponsored nine-mile hike up the 1,085 metres high summit raised over £5,700.

Corporate Fundraiser at Stick ‘n’ Step, Joanne Fowler, who completed the hike as part of her 50th birthday celebrations, said, “This was an incredible experience. It was hard work but so worth it when we all got to the top! 

“We are very grateful to everyone who supported us. All the funds raised will help us go on providing services for children, young people and their families who access our services at our two centres in Runcorn and Wallasey.”

Stick ‘n’ Step offers support services to children with cerebral palsy and their families. The charity provides the children with totally free of charge conductive education sessions, allowing them to gain the skills they need to live more independent lives.  

Over 100 children from across the region usually attend these sessions weekly or twice weekly at the charity’s Wallasey and Runcorn centres.
