So far more than £4,600 has been raised which will go towards paying for a heart screening for young people.

The charity’s founder Deborah Slator said: “The scenery was breathtaking with hills just rolling into hills, beautiful aqua blue lakes and the small steam train chugging up and down the mountain.” To donate, visit: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/snowdonchallenge2018.
