Cyncly business development manager David Roberts has raised over £5000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, in memory of his brother Glyn, after taking a break from his day job to embark on a charity challenge.
Roberts and several friends and family, put their training into action on 1sy July to climb Snowdon, Wales’ highest mountain, which is some 1,085 m above sea level. He was spurred on by his Cyncly colleagues and customers who added to the donations, helping him reach the top of the mountain and beat his fundraising target of £5,000.
Roberts said: “Well, we did it! Conquered our fears and anxieties by working together and proving that, ‘Ain't no mountain high enough’ to keep us from reaching our fundraising target for the MNDA. Thank you so much to everyone who donated, wished us luck, and supplied blister plasters - we could not have done it without you.”
Donations have so far reached £5,500 and the JustGiving fundraising page is still open at www.justgiving.com/page/roberts-family-and-friends for anyone wishing to add to the total raised for the MND Association.
