1000 in mountain challenge From St Helens Star MANAGER of Church Square and his daughter faced a mountain of a challenge by climbing Mount Snowdon to raise funds for a once in a lifetime charity trip.
Steve Brogan and 19 year old Grace climbed more than 3,000ft above sea level to the summit of Snowdon, raising 1,045 for Grace to take part in a sustainable community development project in South Africa this July. "Getting to the top of Snowdon was challenge and a half to say the least, but standing at the summit with my daughter and looking over the breathtaking views was an unforgettable moment for both of us," Steve said. The father and daughter duo were aiming to raise 1,500 in order for Grace to travel to a South African village where she has been accepted onto the Volunteer Eco Students Abroad program. There she will be helping a local chief tackle issues such as the lack of clean, running water as well as educating people about the importance of sustainability, health, hygiene and conservation. Steve said: "What we faced walking up Mount Snowdon doesn't even compare to what many people in South Africa, and around the world for that matter, go through on a daily basis. Whenever we felt like having a grumble about how sore our feet were, we soon reminded ourselves that small children walk for miles on burberry bags outlet online end in unforgiving heat to collect parasite filled water, which carries diseases." Psychology and counselling student Grace said: "When I first told my dad that I planned to hike up Snowdon I was delighted when burberry brit buy online he said burberry mens clothing sale he wanted to come with me I'm so glad we got to do it together.
