Mountain excitement


Beautiful, but tough. Image from the Snowdonai Nation Park Authority.

I received this important message in this evening from Nicole Quinn, one of the great local folk at Wilkinson, in Brownhills. It seems that continuing a series of great community activities, some of the staff are undertaking a rather arduous walk.

I’ll let Nicole explain:

Hi Bob

On Tuesday, 24th June 2013, five team members from the Brownhills branch of Wilkinson, along with a few members from the Stafford store are climbing Mount Snowdon for Cancer Research UK.

We’re taking the Miners Track up to the top and the Pyg Track back down, overall 7 miles.

Just want to raise as much as we can for a great charity that’s close to many people’s hearts!

Our donation page is here, on Just giving

Attached a few pictures for you to take your pick.

Thanks again 🙂


Regular readers will know how important I consider Cancer charities to be, and I urge anyone who can to sponsor these people on their trek. Snowdon is a beautiful bit of Britain, but by heck, it’s tough country. They’ll earn every penny.

Best of luck to all involved, and please do drop me a line to let me know how you all got on.

    Good luck with the weather! Some intrepid souls have walked up and down without seeing more than 20 yards in front of them.

    It’s being so cheerful that keeps me going!

    all the best Pedro
