A DEDICATED team are taking on a gruelling challenge to fundraise for Halton Haven Hospice.

In the early hours of August 4, 24 merseyflow employees will be lacing up their hiking boots for a nine-mile trek up Snowdon.

The group will start the challenge ascent from Llanberis at 2am, reaching the summit in time to witness the 5.30am sunrise.

Merseyflow has made a generous donation of £4,800 to support the event, and the team is hoping to receive further donations to help Halton Haven which plays a crucial role in the community by offering specialist palliative care at no cost to individuals with life-limiting conditions.

The hospice needs to raise over £2.6 million annually to cover its operating costs, with only half of this amount funded by statutory sources. Rising living costs further strain its resources, making donations essential for its continued service.

Helen Williams, marketing manager at merseyflow, is part of the team tackling the highest mountain in Wales. Helen said: “This is both a physical challenge and a fundraising endeavour.

"Our team is ready to push their limits, and we hope the community will support us in making a significant impact for Halton Haven Hospice.

"We are thrilled to contribute to such a worthy cause. The hospice provides invaluable care to our community, and every donation helps ensure they can continue their critical work.”

Tina Gill, fundraising manager at Halton Haven Hospice said: "We are immensely grateful to the merseyflow team for their unwavering support and dedication. T

"heir fundraising efforts make a significant difference in helping us provide essential care and comfort to those in need.

"Every contribution, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated."
