Huws Gray conquers the Three Peaks for Hope House

Published:  27 May, 2015

After a gruelling 24 hours battling against wind, rain, fog, ice, and snow, the determined Huws Gray team got the better of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike in the Lake District and finally Snowdon.

Among the group were Huws Gray sales representative Armon Williams, Craig Williams from the head office, and Cai Llewelyn from the Pwllheli branch. They were accompanied by their friends and family Lois, Swyn, Carys, Arwel, Elliw, Lois Parry, Danny and Arwel.

A team spokesperson said: "It was a fantastic, unforgettable experience. We had some very tough moments such as battling through the snow on Ben Nevis and the awful weather on Scafell Pike, but we managed to pull each other up the mountains and over the finish line.

"We'd like to thank all of our support team. We certainly would not have completed the challenge without their help. Finally, we'd like to thank everyone who supported and sponsored us."

The challenge involved climbing up the highest mountains in England (Scafell Pike 978m), Wales (Snowdon 1085m) and Scotland (Ben Nevis 1344m) respectively.

It's not too late to sponsor the team, please visit Huws Gray’s JustGiving page at: www.justgiving.com/HuwsGrayThreePeaks/.
