Four Wolverhampton employees are braving the elements and hiking the highest point in Wales in a bid to raise as much money as possible for both the Wolves Foundation and Compton Hospice.

Amelia Painting, Clare Jarvis, Jodie Smith and Sally Bromley, employees at Paycare – a not-for-profit Health Cash Plan provider– are proudly taking part in the Snowdon by Sunrise challenge on 1st and 2nd June, organised by Wolves Foundation.

The funds raised by all those doing the challenge will be split equally between Wolves Foundation and Compton Hospice to support both charities in carrying out their valuable work across Wolverhampton and the Black Country.

Sally Bromley, Partnerships Manager at Paycare, explained: “We’re hiking up Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) at 1:45am on the 2nd June along the Llanberis path with a view to reaching the summit at around 5am just in time to enjoy the sunrise.

“We’re each aiming to raise £250 for the event, and we’ll be using our My Giving volunteering days which are gifted to us by Paycare to give back our time to help others. Whether it be volunteering being done in our communities, or raising funds to help causes, charities, and initiatives continue their brilliant work.”

The event will be officially started by organisers Sky Blue Adventures in the early hours of the 2nd June with a three-hour climb to the summit. The group will then descend back down the Llanberis Path at 5:30am before enjoying a celebratory breakfast and glass of bubbly at 8:30am.
