Citizens Advice Flintshire staff and trustees climb our highest peak in an effort to raise funds for the local charity.
The six intrepid hikers will take to the hills on Thursday, July 21, and the money has already started pouring in to support their efforts.
The climb was proposed by Rachel Williams, one of the charity’s many advisers, wishing to raise funds and help people in Flintshire access much-needed advice at a time when finances are under strain due rising inflation and soaring fuel and energy prices:
Rachel said: “These are difficult times and we are working hard to meet the increased demand.”
“More funding means our service is better placed to provide essential advice to those who need it most, at a time when money is very tight for almost everyone.”
One of the charity’s fundraising advocates, Paul Bertrand, said: ‘The climb will be completed by a mix of seasoned climbers alongside several ‘newbies’ and will follow the Rhyd-Ddu trail down to Snowdon.”
“We felt it would be a bit of a challenge for the sponsors to feel sorry for their win and not just be a walk in the park.”
