IT takes on Snowdon

The IT team trekked to the top in three and half hours, raising a massive £470 for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham!

At 6.30am, the team began their journey at the base of mount Snowdon. After a three hour drive (and an essential stop for snacks!) they began the mammoth climb, staying together, keeping the same pace and stopping for regular breaks as the ascent got steeper.

Surrounded by breath-taking scenery, they made it to the highest point in three and a half hours where they munched on lunch in the UK’s highest café, sitting at 3,650 feet and offering a ‘window to the world’.

The descent turned out to be much trickier than the climb and the team had to use their hands to navigate the steep paths back down. Barry Crook, Service Development and Support Manager said: “Morale was a lot higher coming down as we knew we were nearing the bottom and the cars were not far away!”

Richard Cruice, Craig Orme, Andre Schoeman, Paul Connor, Richard Hillman, Adam Bentley, Alastair Tordoff, Darren Smith, Tom Bate, Andrea Campbell Jackson and Barry Crook all successfully made it to the top.

Well done guys – you did it! And you’ve raised loads for a fantastic cause. 🙂
