Tuesday 4th September 2012 – Georgia and I climbed Mount Snowdon together to help fundraise for Tommy’s charity.
Our day started with a very hearty breakfast in the hotel we were staying at in the Snowdon area. Afterwards, we met our guide who had kindly come to collect us to drive us to the starting area for our chosen route – Crib Goch.
You will see from the images how the weather conditions kept changing and ranged from a mixture of extremely hard going to warm sunshine!

The weather was pretty bad with 30 mile an hour winds. It made our guide make the decision to turn us around off the Crib Goch track and to start again on the Pyg track.

This is 5 minutes from reaching the peak of Snowdon – we were very excited!
WE DID IT!

Georgia and me at the very end of our Snowdon challenge feeling tired, hungry but so proud of what we had both achieved
So we did it – my 12-year old and I conquered Mount Snowdon! It was hard going, but we had a really amazing and wonderful day.
The preparation and training paid off. Georgia was truly amazing – she almost flew up the mountain!
This short clip shows us during the challenge making our way up Crib Goch on Mount Snowdon. We are very proud of our mother & daughter achievement in climbing Mount Snowdon and for the fantastic cause which is Tommy’s Charity.
Georgia and I would like to say a HUGE, GREAT BIG THANK YOU for all your support in helping us to raise funds for Tommy’s to support brilliant and much needed research in order to one day help find out why miscarriages, stillbirths and premature babies occur.
Thank you so very much! x
Here’s the certificate I received showing the amount we raised for Tommy’s:
