Climbing Mount Snowdon in Wales in Aid of Autism West Midlands
23rd September 2020
Harry and his friends set up a Just Giving page to fundraise for us when completing their climb of Mount Snowdon in Wales. All of the team (including the dog!) completed the climb wearing their purple Autism West Midlands t-shirts.
Harry initially set a target of £400 to reach which is a fantastic amount that can really help us provide support for people with autism. Fundraising went really well and the team ended up surpassing their target and actually raised a whopping £1355 in total, more than triple the original intended amount!
We asked one of the team, Emily, to share a few words about the trek and why they chose to support Autism West Midlands.
“Climbing Snowdon was something we’ve always wanted to do as a group and raising money for a charity so close to us made it even more special! Harry has autism himself and it was his idea to choose your charity, as it was very personal to him. Not only this, we’ve all worked with adults who have autism and knew that we needed to raise more awareness around the West Midlands.
We woke up at 2am in the morning and we arrived at Snowdon at 7:30am. It was an extremely tiring day but the day itself was extremely rewarding and reaching the top of Snowdon felt like such an achievement for us all. The day was full of laughs and the views were incredible, even though it began raining half way up! Overall this experience was one we will never forget.
We all just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you have done for us to help us begin our fundraising process. It has been a pleasure and we would definitely work again with you in the future.”
Thank you so much to Harry and the team for your outstanding efforts, and to everyone who donated towards their Snowdon adventure!
