バンガー大学各スクール長がスノードン山に挑みました。

2012年11月30日

バンガー大学各スクール長8名が、夜明けの登頂を目指してスノードン山に挑みました。

イングランド、ウェールズ、アイルランド地方で最高峰のスノードン山は1085mで、同グループは慈善活動への資金獲得の一環として登山に挑戦しました。うち4名はスノードン山への登山が初めて。そのうちのひとり、法学部Stephen Clear氏は、早朝3時の状況を「寒いし、濡れるし、ものすごい雪量で、真っ暗」とコメントしました。

Setting off at 3.00 am the intrepid crew: Stephen Clear (School of Law), Alexander Aldred (Business School), Caoimhe Martin (School of Sport, Health and Exercise Science), Chin Wei Ong (School of Sport, Health and Exercise Science), Hayley French (School of Modern Languages), Gwawr Parker (School of Healthcare Sciences), Lindsey Swift (School of Modern Languages), and Max Davidson (School of Psychology), all Ffriddoedd Site University Wardens, took up the challenge.

They were led along the Llanberis ‘Miners’ path by their safety guide Alexander, who is also District Explorer Scout Commissioner for Gwynedd.

The whole team successfully made it to the summit just after 7:05am, 5 minutes before their self imposed sunrise deadline. The team enjoyed spectacular views on their way back down to Llanberis. Caoimhe Martin commented on how “unfortunately at the top we were unable to see sunrise due to snow clouds, but luckily on the way down we emerged from cover and had the chance to glimpse the views that remind us how lucky we are to live in such a breathtakingly beautiful place.”

To date the team have raised over a £1,000 with gift aid for five different charities. These are Home-Start, Barnsley Hospice, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Veterans Aid and the RAF Association. If you would like to donate to one of these charities, or the Warden team’s effort, please visit their Just-Giving page.
