TF/Lawton team conquers Snowdon

The successful TF Solutions/Lawton Tube team at the summit

UK: A 16-strong team from TF Solutions and Lawton Tubes trekked up Mount Snowdon last weekend to raise £1,500 for charity.

The trek took 4 hours 10 minutes to cover the 8 miles up Mount Snowdon, which, at 1,085m, is the highest mountain in Wales.

The effort was in aid of the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Trust, TF Solution’s nominated charity which provides outstanding levels of treatment and support for children battling terminal illness.

“Despite our aching limbs, we were proud to support the Donna Louise Trust once again with our annual challenge, and thrilled that we have smashed our initial fund target by almost £500,” commented TF Solutions operations manager Adam Sanderson. “The hospice offers such incredible support for children with life-limiting conditions and much-needed respite for their families and we are delighted to give our support to this fantastic charity.”
