• Chrisbeon partner Richard takes on charity climb

        • Richard Hughes, a partner of Chrisbeon Office Supplies, has undertaken his first-ever climb of Snowdon in support of a charity his Shropshire firm has taken under its wing for 12 months.

          Richard joined 60 other climbers in support of the Climbing Out charity. The climbers tackled the highest mountain in Wales, 1,085m or 3,560ft above sea level, to raise funds for Climbing Out’s five day outdoor activity programmes.

          Climbing Out was founded in 2010 by Kelda Wood after she suffered a serious leg injury that had a huge impact on her life. As a Shropshire Chamber of Commerce Patron, Chrisbeon is supporting the charity for a 12-month period, assisting with networking and fundraising.

          Richard said, “I have never done anything like this before, so it was quite a major step into the unknown. However, as a Climbing Out supporter for 12 months, I couldn’t refuse Kelda’s invitation to take part.

          “The weather was quite bad with rain most of the day and high winds at the top, together with lots of fog which only cleared after coming back down after about an hour and a half.  

          “Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see very much on the climb, but I had a great day though and really enjoyed it for a great cause and so far, have raised over £370.”

          In total, the Snowdon climb has raised £7,000 towards the funding of five day Climbing Out programmes for young people overcoming a serious injury, illness or trauma.
