A team of Kidderminster lawyers have completed a grueling 12km Snowdon hike to raise funds for a local family-focused charity.

The group of 18 lawyers from mfg Solicitors, together with family and friends, completed the climb up the highest peak in Wales in six hours. So far, they have raised over £3,600 for charity, Home Start Wyre Forest, which offers a variety of advice and practical help to families with children under the age of 18.

Lucy Harrold, a solicitor at the law firm said: “As our Kidderminster office’s chosen charity for this year, we managed to encourage 18 staff from across various departments to take part in the climb. It was a great way to raise money for our local Home Start, which does so much for hundreds of families across the local community every year.

“Snowdon is known for testing people’s mental and physical strength and it was certainly very tough. However, it was all about having fun and trying to hit our target for the charity, which supports around 400 children and their families each year.

Belinda Darby from Home Start Wyre Forest said: “We are so grateful for the support. Not only have the team had to endure the hard climb that Snowdon is known for, but they have also chosen us as their charity to support for the whole year.”
