Ben Nevis Will Fly the Bunting Flag
Between the 5th and 7th July 2018, a group of Dads, whose families have been supported by Tŷ Hafan, will be aiming to climb and travel between five UK mountains in a maximum of 55 hours. The five mountains are Ben Nevis (highest in the UK), Scafell Pike (highest in England), Snowdon (highest in Wales), Cadair Idris and Pen-y-Fan (2nd and 3rd highest in Wales).
Tŷ Hafan is one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities and offers care to children and support for their families, throughout Wales.
“It is a crazy challenge and we wanted to show our support for such an amazing charity,” explained Simon Ayling, Bunting’s Managing Director.
Bunting became involved when Paul Fears, their Press Office and Photographer, announced that he was taking on the #5in55 challenge. Paul and his family have received many years of support from Tŷ Hafan since his eldest son, Greg, was diagnosed with a life-limiting condition.
“Paul talked to us about the challenge and explained that this group of Dads just wanted to do something to promote Tŷ Hafan and thank the staff and care team” said Simon. “Walking up five mountains in 55 hours was considered to be tough enough to be a real challenge, but is nothing compared to the daily challenges faced by the families and children who are supported by Tŷ Hafan. Immediately, we wanted to support them and asked to sponsor the climb to the top of the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis.”
The #5in55 team are thrilled to have Bunting as a headline sponsor and donations for the Ty Hafan #5in55 Mountain Challenge can be made on their Just Giving site.
