 10-year-old conquers Snowdon for great grandmother

10-year-old conquers Snowdon for great grandmother

By 22nd August, 2019 Press Releases Comments Off

A 10-YEAR-OLD has conquered Wales’ tallest mountain to raise money for the care home where her great grandmother lives.

Fifi Phillips’ sponsored walk to the top of the 1,085m high Snowdon raised over £520 for Halton View Care Home, on Sadler Street, Widnes.

She is a regular visitor to the home, where her great grandmother Audrey Galinsky is a resident, and wanted to show her support.

The money has been used to buy two companion benches, where residents can sit and chat to each other when strolling down the corridor.

Clare Richards, home manager at Halton View Care Home, said: “What an incredible achievement for Fifi to have walked to the top of Snowdon.

“The walk can take adults five to seven hours to complete so we’re really impressed with Fifi’s amazing achievement.

“We are so grateful she chose to use the walk to fund raise for Halton View. The money has made a big difference to those who live with us, including her great grandmother Audrey.”
