Elmhurst's Mount Snowdon Climb for Yemen

Elmhurst staff, parents and friends climbed Mount Snowdon on the 22.6.19 for Human Appeal because we hoped to help relieve some of the suffering of people in Yemen. It was a tough climb, as we chose to go up the PYG track, which is one of the toughest climbs up Snowdon mountain.

We started in the heat of midday which was gruelling, but at the same time the clear skies meant that the view from the top was amazing. The school is immensely proud of everyone who took part and raised the necessary funds.

We greatly appreciated all the efforts fundraisers went through to raise around £7,000 and we hope to still raise more money in the coming days. It was lovely how people donated their Zakat money, children donated their pocket money, we had two separate days of food sales at the East End Shopping Centre with the generous help of Mr Naveed Ahmed and Mr Bob Popat, we had parents prepare staff lunches, a non-uniform day, a summer fayre and many sales of snacks at school by the Year 3 and Year 4 staff and children.

There is still time to donate and donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient.

The people of Yemen are in desperate need of food and medicine. Already it is estimated 85,000 children have died since the start of the war. Please donate as much as you can.
