In early June, Station Manager Dave Latham, along with a small support team of other Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service personnel, took on the epic challenge of climbing Snowdon as many times as they could in 24 hours… they managed an astounding five times!
Station Manager Latham and the team undertook this epic challenge in support of the Fire Fighters Charity, an organisation that offers specialist, lifelong support for members of the UK fire services community, which includes current and retired personnel and their families.
Station Manager Latham, living in Newtown but working out of our Service Headquarters’, said, ‘Although achieving five summits was a great personal achievement, the real success was watching those who joined me achieve their own personal challenges along the way. The support received was incredible, from social media messages and phone calls during the challenge, through to the welfare support given at the bottom of the mountain, I really am grateful for everyone’s support.’
To date the amount raised is an astonishing £1,855… but it’s not too late to donate! Head over to the Just Giving page HERE – every little bit, no matter how small, is greatly received. Thank you to all those who have donated already.
