GWlegal Raises £3,986 In Support Of Dementia UK And Alzheimer’s Society

Published: 16/04/2018

More than 40 GWlegal staff members have conquered Wales’ highest mountain, raising an impressive £3,986 as a result.

The climbers trekked Mount Snowdon on Sunday 8th April in support of charities Dementia UK and Alzheimer’s Society. The Gwynedd mountain is the highest in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level, and the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands.

Team GW walked the Miners Track, which is the third-hardest track on the mountain, during which they had to physically climb up the incline using their hands at certain points. While the adventure was a little chilly at first, the keen climbers were soon able to strip off their thermal layers and enjoy the stunning Welsh views wearing just t-shirts (and trousers, of course!).

While team members at the Liverpool law firm agreed the climb was challenging (and has resulted in many staff hobbling around the office in the days following!), they said it was an excellent team-building exercise, as the trek involved people from across Property, Personal Injury, Marketing, ICT and Accounts departments, who don’t always speak with each other day-to-day.

The team at GWlegal began fundraising for the event in February. Fundraising efforts included ‘Guess how many sweets in the jar’ competition (which raised £100 and was won by our receptionist Jenny Richey) and a ‘Time for a Cuppa’ event (which raised £100), transforming the staff lounge into a tea party full of goodies baked by team members, and featuring the famous chocolate brownies crafted by GW’s in-house Mary Berry AKA Jenny Gibbons (of The Little Whisk, her side-business).
