Victoria House Day Nursery team takes on Snowdon for charity
A team of practitioners from Victoria House Day Nursery in Marlow have completed a climb up Mount Snowdon, all in the name of charity.
The group of ten from the day nursery in Victoria Road embarked on the ascent up the highest mountain in Wales, which sits at 1,085 metres above sea level, to raise money for mental health charity ‘Mind’.
Laura Rogers, Jessica Pausey, Charlotte Ingram, Sonia Mangino, Hannah Judd, Olivia Bennett, Amarah Kanwal, Thiba Janghir, Rumaysa Jawaid and Holly Bryant completed the 11 mile Llanberis Path in a total of 6 hours and raised an incredible £785 for Mind in the process.
Victoria House Day Nursery Manager, Laura Rogers explained;
“Climbing Snowdon was a fantastic experience and we are very lucky to have such a determined and supportive team. The sun was shining and the views from the summit were stunning. We’re thrilled to be able to give the money raised to such a deserving charity.”
Victoria House has adopted Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales which offers specialised services, advice and support to those living with a mental health problem, for a year-long fundraising drive.
“We aim to make a real difference when it comes to supporting worthy causes and Mind is reaching out to about 14 million people a year in the UK who are experiencing a mental health problem,” said Laura.
Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Money raised will fund the charity’s work including the Mind Infoline and campaigning to secure a better deal for everybody who experiences a mental health problem.
