Fortress Sport Relief Challenge!

WaterfallTreckinSummit Pic

Four members of the Fortress Recycling team successfully conquered Mount Snowdon for charity on Saturday 20th February.

The 3,560 ft climb was undertaken in challenging conditions; driving rain turned into hail and sleet as they got to higher ground. Conditions under foot were icy and they faced winds of 65mph.

The 6 hour trek was sponsored by Fortress in aid of Sport Relief. John Gates said; “It was tough going, but having to battle the elements gave us more of a challenge and a sense of achievement when we reached the summit.”

Henry Leaver said “It was good fun and for a great cause. We’re now looking forward to climbing Ben Nevis in the summer. Hopefully the view will be better at that time of year!”
