Move Publishing’s charity Snowdon climb raises more than £1,800
Move Publishing has raised more than £1,800 for The Whitechapel Centre after taking on Wales’ highest peak.
The team behind YM Liverpool tackled the 1,085-metre high Mount Snowdon in aid of the charity, which supports Liverpool’s rough sleepers and those on the brink of homelessness.
Move Publishing’s mountaineers followed the Llanberis Path to the summit on one of the hottest days of the year so far and made it back down to the bottom in a seven-hour round trip.
Matthew Smith, Move Publishing’s social media guru who led the 20 April trek, says: “The blazing sunshine brought its own challenges for the team to overcome on the day, but breathtaking views and a fantastic fundraising total for The Whitechapel Centre were a brilliant reward for everyone’s hard work.
“We’d like to thank all of our supporters who have helped us raise so much money for a vital Liverpool cause.”
Charlotte Hopkins, The Whitechapel Centre’s events and community fundraiser, says: “The money raised will help us provide things like breakfast or a change of clothes every day, but it will also help us provide long-term support to help someone move out of homelessness and into accommodation.
“Last year The Whitechapel Centre supported over 3,000 people to end or prevent homelessness and we couldn’t do this without the help of organisations like Move Publishing.”
The Whitechapel Centre is open 365 days a year and provides services to people who are sleeping rough, living in temporary accommodation or those at risk of becoming homeless.
Charlotte adds: “There are lots of things you can do to support The Whitechapel Centre, such as collecting items (we keep our website updated with the things we’re running short of), fundraising, volunteering, and if you are worried about someone who is rough sleeping you can contact us on 0300 123 2041.”
