Losing 30 kgs and summiting Snowdon 50 times
A donation of £1626 was presented to Berwyn Hughes the Team Treasurer by Jeff Shields from Connah’s Quay in appreciation of the work done by the Team.
Jeff is the Manager of the Deeside Leisure Centre and since February 2016 he has managed to shed 30 kgs in weight in order to to tackle a diabetes issue, and if that was not an achievement in itself he celebrated his 50th birthday by reaching the summit of Yr Wyddfa 50 times during the year.. He has ascended to the summit by every route many times but regularly descended along the Llanberis path stopping at the Penceunant cafe to be encouraged and supported by Steffan Roberts to achieve his goal.
Jeff admired the work done by the Team and decided the effort of his fundraising should be donated to the mountain rescue team which serves Snowdon. Our thanks go to Jeff and the many who accompanied him on his walks, their efforts are admired and greatly appreciated.
