Hannah’s Trekking Challenge
Mollie and Hannah aimed to raise £250 as a thank you to the services for their support and help after the death of Hannah’s partner in 2014. The mother-daughter duo started going for walks in May this year, which soon grew to friends joining, which then led to Mollie wanting to take on Snowdon and the full Sarsen Trail, with a fantastic team of her friends all wanting to raise money and support each other along the way. All of Mollie’s friends have been partaking in practice walks to train and support Mollie, even climbing Pen Y Fan together!
“The children, all aged between 8 and 10, haven’t once moaned or not wanted to go, in fact, they often ask when we are next going out! Words can’t express how proud we are of these little people and what they are doing and not just for themselves. In Mollie’s short life she’s had to deal with an awful lot and I really believe that by doing these walks, getting outside and having a such a fantastic team of friends behind her she has become a happier little girl.”
Hannah and Mollie will be climbing Snowdon this year, and will take on the full Sarsen Trail (Avebury to Stonehenge, 26 miles) in May next year. The money raised will be split between the Wiltshire Air Ambulance, a publically funded life-saving service, and Winston’s Wish, the UK’s first childhood bereavement charity. They set their target at £250, and have already reached over 3 times that! If you’d like to donate, please head over to Mollie’s Just Giving page.
