We’re climbing Mount Snowdon!

In just a few weeks time, Carly, Jen, Scott and I will be making our way to face Mount Snowdon to raise money for the charity NICE. Set in the beautiful Snowdonia National Park, Mount Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales at 1,085m and the highest point in the British Isles (excluding Scotland), boasting breathtaking views across the mountains and all the way to Anglesey in the west.

NICE (The National Institute of Conductive Education) is a leading UK charity, working to improve the lives of children and adults with neurological movement disorders through Conductive Education. GRIN has been working with the wonderful team at NICE for many years on a variety of projects so we know how special their organisation is and how crucial their work is to its members. Not only does NICE provide specialised services, it raises expectations of the individuals, opening up opportunities, allowing them to reach their maximum potential. This is all achieved through physical development and offering empowerment on their journey to independence.

The event will take place on Saturday 2nd June where we’ll be trekking for eight and a half miles and climbing a vertical distance of over half a mile! We aim to raise at least £100 each, making a grand total of £400 for team GRIN! If you would like to donate to us then head over to uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/GRIN

No one in our team have ever climbed Mount Snowdon before, or even anything on a similar scale, so this will definitely be a hard fought challenge. Any support or donation will be greatly received!

Make sure you’re following us on Instagram, as we’ll be posting updates on the challenge to our Instagram Story! (Well, depending on how good the signal is of course.)

If you too would like to join us on our trek, then register your interest with Annie by emailing anniesmith@conductive-education.org.uk

We love working for NICE because we get the opportunity to work on such varied projects, all of which have such a great cause. Take a look below at some of our most recent project highlights!
