Three Wisbech men will spend their August bank holiday climbing up Snowdon to raise money for charity in memory of a work colleague.

David Youngs, Stephen Holt and Adam Gray, who work at Hughes in the Market Place, will be heading to the Snowdonia National Park in Wales to boost funds for Marie Curie, which provides care and support for people through terminal illnesses.

“We are doing this in memory of our work colleague Jon Foley who sadly passed away three years ago,” said David Youngs.

“I knew Jon was a great Welsh rugby fan and in talking to his daughters, Sian and Laurette, realised they were born in Wales, sparking the idea of climbing Snowdon.

“I have climbed it before but that was over 10 years ago and remember it taking about five hours.

“Unfortunately, there are not too many mountains in the Fens to do any training on so it will be a real challenge.”
