Members of staff at Specsavers in Wellington climbed Mount Snowdon, raising more than £500 for the Cavernoma Alliance, a UK charity supporting people affected by cavernoma.

On Sunday 17 June a group of eight, including four members of staff from Specsavers, tackled Wales' highest mountain in extreme weather conditions. However, not letting the severe fog get in their way, the summit of the mountain was successfully reached.

'Fantastic fundraising'

‘We’re all so impressed with our staff for climbing Snowdon and reaching a fantastic fundraising total,’ said store director, Emma Davies. ‘The fact that they didn’t let the weather conditions put them off is admirable. A big well done to the whole team.

‘We’d like to say a huge thank you to the local community for the donations. The Cavernoma Alliance is a charity dedicated to raising awareness of a relatively unknown condition and I’d like to encourage all to find out more about its fantastic work.’

About the charity

A cavernoma is a cluster of abnormal blood vessels, usually found in the brain and spinal cord. The Cavernoma Alliance UK aims to provide support and information for all those affected by the condition including friends, family and carers, as well as raise public awareness.
