On Saturday 6th August a group of Curry Circle volunteers took on Wales’ highest point, Mount Snowden. The idea to run a sponsored fundraising climb of Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, came from The Muslim Women’s Council in an effort to increase funds for the Curry Circle; an initiative that offers a hot two-course meal for the less fortunate.
Since its launch in December 2013 the Curry Circle has already provided over 25,000 meals to some of Bradford’s most vulnerable individuals. We get support on surplus food from Tesco PLC, Lidl, Yaadgaar Bakeries, and Regal Foods.
A first climber, Jenny Mundy, said “I absolutely loved every minute of The Snowdon Challenge. It was such an awesome day, although I definitely need to train for the next one! It was great to be with such lovely bunch of people, raising money for such a good cause”.
Soban Aamir, aged 12 and the youngest of the group, said “I loved climbing Snowdon again after my first visit last year. The weather was on our side and I was really happy that I got to summit first!”
Adam Raja, who led the climb, said “Each person who completed the climb raised enough money to feed 100 people. Everyone who took part did a fantastic job and I am really proud of them for taking on this challenge for the Curry Circle”.
