These amazing events give you the chance to climb Mount Snowdon, overnight, to raise money for a ward or department of your choice at your local hospital.
We will be setting off from Birmingham and travelling to Mount Snowdon via coach, arriving at the mountain shortly after midnight. We will then meet up with the professional guides who will accompany us every step of the way as we make our way up the highest mountain in England and Wales!
We will reach the summit in time for the sunrise, before returning back down the mountain and taking the coach back to Birmingham.
