Snowdon SunRaise 2018

The first Snowdon SunRaise was an amazing experience for everyone involved. Here are some of the comments we received:

“…a sunrise delivered on Angel wings, one of the most spiritual, miraculous and uplifting experiences ever .. I will remember it and all of you, all of my days”

“It was a privilege to be part of such a spiritual and emotional adventure, the angels did us proud with such an amazing sunrise.”

“Wow! What an achievement! so proud to be part of your special journey with such inspirational people.”

“Woweeee. Amazing… I’m still blown away by the whole experience xx”

And from a member of our team: “Thank you for letting me work that amazingly special job Friday night, for such an amazing cause, it will be one I remember for a long time to come”
