Green Park Day Nursery team takes on Snowdon for charity
A team of practitioners from Green Park Day Nursery in Reading have completed a climb up Mount Snowdon, all in the name of charity.
The group of 12 from the day nursery in Lime Square embarked on the ascent up the highest mountain in Wales, which sits at 1,085 metres above sea level, to raise money for mental health charity ‘Mind’.
Mandy Cooper, Lisa Manston, Melissa Parisi, Pavla Bimova, Nikki Milam, Grace Critcher, Scarlett Seward, Rachel Stevenson, Rebecca Tiller, Chloe Huggins, Chloe Roberts, Hayley Scott and Heather Whyte have managed to raise over £750 via JustGiving and will have exceeded £1000 once all the money is collected.
Green Park Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Lisa Manston explained;
“Climbing Snowdon was a fantastic experience and we are very lucky to have such a determined and supportive team. The sun was shining and the views from the summit were stunning. We’re thrilled to be able to give the money raised to such a deserving charity.”
Green Park has adopted Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales which offers specialised services, advice and support to those living with a mental health problem, for a year-long fundraising drive.
“We aim to make a real difference when it comes to supporting worthy causes and Mind is reaching out to about 14 million people a year in the UK who are experiencing a mental health problem,” said Mandy Cooper, Nursery Manager.
Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Money raised will fund the charity’s work including the Mind Infoline and campaigning to secure a better deal for everybody who experiences a mental health problem.
