Join our sponsored walk to Snowdon for Sky Badger

If you’ve been paying close attention to our blog lately, you will know that we are doing some fund raising for an awesome SEND charity called Sky Badger throughout 2020. As part of this, our Midlands team are organising a sponsored walk to Snowdon on 16th May. If you’d like to join them on this walk, or sponsor their efforts, you can do so by checking out the information in this blog.

Climb the highest peak in Wales with Axcis!

Snowdon is the highest peak in Wales, at an elevation of 1085m above sea level, and the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands. It is located in Snowdonia National Park (Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri) in Gwynedd. It is the busiest mountain in the United Kingdom and the third most visited attraction in Wales; in 2018 it was visited by 558,000 walkers, with an additional 140,000 people taking the train. It is designated as a national nature reserve for its rare flora and fauna.

This isn’t the first time we’ve got outdoors for a cause. From abseiling adventures and night runs to doing the Three Peaks Challenge, our team like to get in on the action to support our chosen charities, and we are very proud of them for that.

Why have we chosen to support Sky Badger?

This wonderful charity finds help and adventure for disabled children and their families all over the UK. They do this by building bridges between disabled children and the charities and services available to help. They find everything from disabled sports clubs to sibling groups to ‘make a wish’ charities and tell families about them though their website, social media platforms, videos, information packs and helpdesk. This small charity doesn’t attract national-level attention or huge charitable donations, so we are helping to shine a spotlight on them in 2020 so they can keep up the good work. Will you help?

How to get involved

If you’re not the active type or don’t have time…

If you’re more of a couch potato than a Saturday hiker, we’d love it if you could spare a few quid to sponsor our efforts – you can make a donation via our funding page. Any amount, no matter how big or small is hugely appreciated.

Or come for the walk!

However, if you’re keen to get involved yourself, we’d love for you to join us on the walk. Simply get in touch with our Midlands team – they will give you all the information you’ll need to join them on the day. You can either raise some money yourself and then make a one-off donation via our fundraising page, or you can pass the link onto your friends and family and ask them to sponsor you individually – whatever works best for you!

Help by sharing this blog or the funding link on social media

If you’d like to help but can’t spare time or cash at the moment, then no worries. How about trying to help spread the word, instead? We’d love it if you could share this blog to your own social media pages – or if you aren’t keen to do that, why not share our funding page? Here’s the link you need to do that: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/charise-clarke
