Mountain trek raises £12,000 for nursing charity

  • Comment

A team of fundraisers ascended Snowden, the highest peak in Wales, last month in order to raise money for the Cavell Nurses’ Trust.

On 25 April, 41 fundraisers from Premier Pensions Management alongside supporters of the trust took part.

The charity provides welfare support to nurses, midwives, healthcare assistants and students experiencing financial or personal hardship, often because of illness, domestic abuse, disability, working poverty and older age. 

Cavell Nurses’ Trust chief executive Steve Charlton said:“In the last year Cavell Nurses’ Trust helped over 1,100 people with over 7,100 years combined service to the public.

“I’d like to thank Premier Pensions Management and the rest of the fundraisers,” he said. “You can all proudly say you’re here for nurses.”

This event formed part of the charity’s centenary appeal, which commemorates the execution of WW1 nurse Edith Cavell in 1915.

Ms Cavell was celebrated for saving WW1 soldiers’ lives on both sides but was shot for helping 200 Allied soldiers escape to freedom from German-occupied Belgium.

In addition to the ascent of Snowdon, the centenary appeal includes a similar fundraising challenge at Mount Edith Cavell in Canada.
