Snowdon 4

Construction go the extra mile!

Snowdon 1

Recently staff and students from our Construction and Foundation departments successfully climbed to the summit of Snowdon. Andy Gould – Construction programme leader did so carrying an impressive 19kg hod of bricks! Snowdon 3

The team, made up of 18 students and 5 staff were led by  the expert guidance of their mountain leaders Simon and Jessica from Adventure Sports. The original plan was to climb the Pyg track, a 7 mile round trip with a 2,372ft ascent, unfortunately they weren’t able to do this route so instead took the Watkin path making it an 8 mile round trip with a total ascent of 3,330ft.

The reason for the climb was to raise money for the college RAG charityThe British Heart Foundation. So far the donations for this fundraiser alone stand at a whopping £865! A huge well done to all involved!

There’s still time to show your support to the team and the British Heart Foundation by sponsoring them via Andy’s JustGiving page here.
