Saturday 2 July 2022
Snowdon Sunrise Challenge
with Lindsey Lodge and Rotherham Hospice
Trek to the highest point in Wales in time for sunrise and help Lindsey Lodge provide specialist care.
A night time trek by the light of your head torch (and hopefully a starry sky) to the summit of Snowdon in time to see the sunrise across Snowdonia.
Leaving Llanberis in the early hours accompanied by a team of professional mountain leaders, you will head along the Llanberis Path to the summit of Snowdon (or Yr Wyddfa to use its Welsh name) reaching the summit in time to see the sunrise from one of the most beautiful destinations on earth.
You will return along the same path in the first light of dawn, reaching Llanberis just in time for breakfast.
About the Charities
Situated in the heart of North Lincolnshire, Lindsey Lodge has been providing high quality, specialist palliative care and wellbeing services to local people and families living with life limiting illnesses for over 29 years.
Every year, our dedicated team of staff and volunteers touch the lives of hundreds of people, either directly as patients, or by supporting family members or carers, before, during and after one of the most difficult times in their lives.
At Rotherham Hospice we believe in Compassion, Choice and Dignity for all. We are the only adult Hospice in the Rotherham area, providing specialist end-of-life care and support, free of charge to the people of Rotherham and their close ones. Our Community Team cares for patients in their own homes, and our 14-bed In-patient Unit provides a cosy sanctuary for those whose symptoms cannot be managed from home.
As a charity we rely on the generosity of our local community to raise £3 million each and every year so we can keep supporting our Rotherham families. Thank you!
