Walk for Waste: Climb Snowdon to Raise Funds for WasteAid
Friends and colleagues are invited to join WasteAid UK on a sponsored walk up Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales.
The Walk for Waste, organised by LARAC’s Sally Talbot in support of WasteAid UK, will take place on Saturday 16th July. Sponsored walkers get to experience the breathtaking views of Snowdonia and enjoy sunset at the summit.
Mike Webster, WasteAidUK Chair, said: “The Walk for Waste will follow the Llanberis Trail – one of the most popular routes to the top of Mount Snowdon. We’re hoping plenty of people will join us to raise funds for WasteAid UK so we can continue sharing waste management expertise with those who really need it.”
Reaching a final height of over 3,500 feet and covering a total distance of 10 miles, this is a fantastic opportunity to get fit, have fun, and support a very worthy cause.
Why support WasteAid?
WasteAid UK is a charity set up by waste management professionals to deliver practical and low-cost waste services in developing countries.
Mike Webster said: “Three billion people lack rubbish collection and disposal services, and it’s causing a global health crisis.
“We partner with local organisations to improve the health, environment and livelihoods of people without waste services. Our focus is on building the skills of local people to deliver practical solutions to the waste crisis in their own communities.”
WasteAid UK has already delivered lasting change in The Gambia and Kenya, and is raising money to fund more waste-wise initiatives around the globe.
If you would like to support the work of WasteAid UK and help waste management improve lives, then join the Walk for Waste.
Fundraising target: minimum £50 per person
Walkers will meet at electric mountain visitor centre in Llanberis at 5.30pm and return by 11pm. The descent will be in the dark, so bring a torch!
