Joseph and William Climb Mount Snowdon

Tackling the highest mountain in Wales saw two people we support at The Chantry put their very best foot forward to complete the challenge of climbing Mount Snowdon.

Joseph and William live at The Chantry, a residential home in Leicester which supports people with learning disabilities or mental health needs.

The dynamic duo decided they wanted to take on the challenge of Mount Snowdon, which stands at more than 1000 metres (or 3,500 feet), making it the highest mountain in Wales and the highest point in the UK outside of the Scottish Highlands.

Despite high winds, dense fog and achy legs, the pair did fantastically well and completed their self-imposed challenge in four hours.

As well as the fantastic views they enjoyed, the pair were also rewarded with certificates for reaching the summit.

David Kline, Manager of The Chantry, which supports 13 people, said: “This was a fantastic achievement for Joseph and William who really enjoyed tackling Mount Snowdon and who did brilliantly to climb it in such a short space of time.

“At The Chantry, we’re focused on helping people live as independently as possible and to make every day amazing.”
