Romsey Mill Trekkers take on the Welsh!

< Back to listing

 

In 2014, a fantastic team of Romsey Mill trekkers took on the 24 Peak Challenge in the Lake District, and helped to raise £20,000 for our work with disadvantaged children, young people and families.
Having conquered the highest range of mountains that England has to offer, we are now turning our attention to the principality— and the Welsh 3000s!  
And we are looking for people who want to join us! 
Romsey Mill’s Welsh 3000s Challenge takes place over the weekend of Friday 24th — Sunday 26th June. 
Recognised as being a tough challenge over rugged terrain, the Welsh 3000s is a strenuous 35 mile walk over 14 peaks in Snowdonia, which walkers aim to complete within 24 hours, over one or two days, depending on fitness. 
Accompanied by experienced mountain guides, trekkers will have the opportunity to take part in a demanding yet memorable event; and also help to make a difference for local families and young people who face  significant challenges of their own.  
Does that appeal to the adventurous spirit inside you? 
We are asking for a non-refundable deposit of £150 per person, to cover the costs of the trip, including two nights accommodation and food, and experienced mountain guides. We also ask that those taking part try to raise at least £500 for Romsey Mill.
The event is open to anyone who is up to the physical challenge, and wants to help us in this way. So if you want to take part individually, or as part of a team—do get in touch. Places are limited, and it will be first come, first served. 
Please also get in touch if you could volunteer for the event to help us with driving the minibuses, or if you have a food hygiene certificate, and could cook for the team. 
You can find out more about the Welsh 3000s Challenge on our website: www.romseymill.org, where you can also download a copy of the booking form.
Alternatively, give us a call on 01223 566492 to talk to a member of our Fundraising team, and we will send details to you.

The Welsh 3000s Mountain Trek Challenge

(24th-26th June 2016)

 

Later this month, a team of trekkers will be taking on the Welsh 3000s Mountain Challenge to help raise much needed funds to support the work of Romsey Mill. 

And they need your support too! 

Romsey Mill’s Welsh 3000s Challenge takes place over the weekend of Friday 24th — Sunday 26th June

Recognised as being a tough challenge over rugged terrain, the Welsh 3000s is a strenuous 35 mile walk taking in all the peaks over 3000ft in Snowdonia, which walkers aim to complete within 24 hours, over one or two days, depending on fitness. 

Accompanied by experienced mountain guides, trekkers will have the opportunity to take part in a demanding yet memorable event; and also help to make a difference for local families and young people who face significant challenges of their own.  

If you would like to sponsor our team, please visit their online fundraising page, where you can make a donation to individual trekkers, or the team as a whole.
