emma-at-summit

A few words from Emma’s Mum;

“Emma owes much to the support given to her by the team at Bumblebee Children’s Charity when she was younger and she wanted to give something back to help the school. Emma chose to climb Snowdon as it would present her a real challenge. It was difficult climb in places but she did it with determination and a smile on her face.  Emma says she felt very proud and special to reach the top”

It was lovely seeing Emma back at the centre after her wonderful achievement raising £500 for the children and families of Bumblebees
