Huws Gray conquers the three peaks

A team of Huws Gray employees, family and friends have raised almost £5000 for Hope House Children’s Hospice after hiking up the three highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales.

Huws Gray conquers the three peaks

After a gruelling 24 hours battling against wind, rain, fog, ice and snow the determined Huws Gray team got the better of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike in the Lake District and finally Snowdon.

Among the group were Huws Gray sales representative, Armon Williams, Craig Williams from Head Office and Cai Llewelyn from the Pwllheli branch. They were accompanied by friends and family Lois, Swyn, Carys, Arwel, Elliw, Lois Parry, Danny & Arwel.

A team spokesman said: “It was a fantastic, unforgettable experience. We had some very tough moments such as battling through the snow on Ben Nevis and the awful weather on Scafell Pike, but we managed to pull each other up the mountains and over the finish line.

“We’d like to thank all our support team. We certainly would not have completed the challenge without their help. Finally we’d like to thank everyone who supported and sponsored us”.

The challenge involved climbing up the highest mountains in England (Scafell Pike 978m), Wales (Snowdon 1085m) and Scotland (Ben Nevis 1344m) respectively.

Eluned Yaxley from Hope House commented on the team’s success: “On behalf of everyone at Hope House we would like to thank the team for their incredible achievement. The money raised will help us to support and care for seriously ill children and their families”.
