TACT young people, carers and staff complete first climb of Pan y Fan

Author: TACT Communications

Last week, 22 TACT Cymru young people, carers and staff completed the first of two hikes up Pan y Fan, the tallest peak in South Wales, to raise money to plant 2000 trees and fight the climate crisis.

Children’s Resource Worker, Jeremy: “It was calm & clear at the base of the mountain but 20 mins into the climb we were engulfed by the clouds & the wind increased until it was blowing a gale at the top! But we weren’t deterred! Everyone soldiered on, no man, woman or child was left behind and everyone returned relieved and happy to be back at base camp and the burger van!”

The decision to raise money in this way came after young people in Wales made it clear that they wanted to do what they can to help address climate change.

Money raised will be donated to Stump Up for Trees, who aim to plant a million trees in the Brecon Beacons region.

The 2nd hike will take place on August 31st, by which point, we hope to have raised £2,000. We still need your support to reach that target so please consider donating here.
