Staff from the Aldridge and Tamworth branches of plumbers merchants PTS (Plumbing Trade Supplies) are preparing to climb Mount Snowdon in aid of children’s charity NSPCC.
The team of seven will be aiming for the summit on July 19, going up by the ‘Pyg track’ and across ‘Crib Goch’ to finally reach the peak of Snowdon after 14 miles.
The same team have already completed a trek from PTS Tamworth branch to PTS Aldridge in 2008 to raise £3,300.
Mark Wallis, branch manager at PTS Aldridge, said: “The 24 mile walk we completed last year in aid of the NSPCC was a huge success and we managed to raise a fantastic amount for a very worthy cause. Customers and the general public were a great support, not only donating their hard earned cash but cheering us on throughout the hike. Although this year we won’t have the crowds pushing us on, we are hoping to raise even more to give us a much needed boost when we are tackling the slopes of Snowdon.”
The team aims to raise £4,500 this year and have been selling PTS travel mugs in the branches to help reach over £2,000 already.
