Snowdon at Sunrise

17 September 2023

Could you imagine how it would feel to stand 3,560 feet above sea level at the top of Snowdon watching the sunrise with your friends and family?

Join us on 17th September 2023 to witness the stunning landscapes of the highest mountain in Wales whilst the sun rises around you.

Everybody knows that we should keep active to look after our mental health and wellbeing but giving yourself a challenge to aim for can really help to keep you motivated and make all that effort worthwhile! Don’t forget it wouldn’t be a challenge without that reward of a glass of something sparkly at the top!

On the lead up to the event you would be raising vital funds for Primrose Hospice & Family Support Centre to help us to support more people living with life-limiting illnesses and families in Northeast Worcestershire.

Take on this unforgettable experience this year to make a difference not only to your life but to many others in our local community.
