£7,000 raised in Basepoint Charity Snowdon Climb

Canterbury, Chatham, Dartford, Folkestone, Northfleet, Tilbury

On Monday 7th September, Basepoint's Kent and Essex region management team started work a little earlier than usual. In fact, they started at 4am, from Basepoint Northfleet - destination Snowdonia in Wales.

Centre managers of Northfleet, Dartford, Chatham, Tilbury, Canterbury and Folkstone and Regional manager, Alan Paterson, took on the challenge of climbing Mount Snowdon to raise money for their local chosen charities.

The team arrived at around 10am on the Monday and proceeded up the mountain, reaching the peak at around 1.30pm. After spending some time taking in and appreciating the breath-taking views, they descended back down to the bottom (a lot quicker than they took to get to the top!) arriving safely and conveniently next to a pub at around 5..30pm where they enjoyed a Snowdonian lager to celebrate.

A total of £7,000 was raised with match funding from The ACT Foundation for; Alzheimer's and Dementia Support Services, CRY, The Friends of the Wisdom Hospice and Sugarloaf RDA.

When you team together, the sky is your limit!
