The trek

Snowdon is situated in the glorious mountain range of Snowdonia, where on a clear day you will be treated to some absolutely spectacular views.

Whether you’re looking for an adventure, meet like minded people or wish to make the world a better place by raising funds for some of the most deprived people on the planet; take on this superb challenge in the heart of Wales, climbing from the foot of Snowdon to its summit in one day.

Climbers will be given expert mountaineering guidance from team leaders, helping each participant to conquer the 1085m tall mountain. The total trek will take approximately 5 hours up and down the rocky terrain. The route is liable to change in line with weather conditions to ensure the safest route is taken.

Cause

95% of Gaza’s water is contaminated with sea water, sewage and chemicals.

Natural water and resources have been greatly damaged after continuous years of conflict in Gaza, and as a result, 95% of the water in Gaza is unfit for human use. People are forced to drink dirty, contaminated water which can lead to life threatening illnesses.

A 2014 report produced by the EU and UNICEF stated "More than four out of five Palestinians in Gaza buy their drinking water from unregulated, private vendors, a heavy burden on impoverished families."

Innocent Palestinians are being robbed of their basic human rights of clean water. But you can make a real difference by supporting the Gaza water Project.

A full water tanker will provide 2000 litres of life saving water. Each family will receive 20 litres - that’s enough to last 100 families almost 2 weeks.

You can provide safe water to the people who need it the most by helping the Gaza Water Project. Donate now and we can make a real difference.
