Noreen to take on Snowdon
Noreen Sumra, Chair of the Trustees at Westminster Befriend a Family (WBAF), is putting her foot in it, or, more accurately, putting her feet in it, and hopes to raise a lot of money in the process …
She’s climbing 3,560 feet to the top of Mount Snowdon to help raise money for WBAF’s work helping vulnerable families in Westminster find ways to turn their lives around.
“I’m a regular and keen walker,’ she said, ‘but I haven’t done a challenge like this for a few years. So I decided September 5th is the day and climbing Snowdon is the first step to me eventually climbing the three peaks.”
Along with Snowdon, the three peaks are Ben Nevis, the highest peak in Scotland and Scafell Pike the highest point in the Lake District. She makes no promises about when she will get around to climbing the other two peaks but is determined to get Snowdon under her belt. “I’ve been thinking about doing this for about a year; joining WBAF has been the motivation I needed to get going with it.”
Snowdon is the highest peak in Wales and was used by famed climber Edmund Hillary to train for his Mount Everest expedition. Noreen will be using the 735 feet high Box Hill in Surrey as her training ground.
