An intrepid team of fundraisers are aiming high in a charity challenge to support research and development at the N&N.
The team of 10, who all work at the Quadram Institute, will travel to Wales on 9 June to prepare to climb the 1,085 metre (3,560 feet) Snowdon the following day.
They will be climbing The Llanberis Path, a distance of nine miles and hope to reach the summit and come back down in between six to eight hours.
Becky Woodcock, Research Study Administrator, and one of climbers said: “We wanted to do something for charity and the N&N Hospitals Charity was one that we could all relate to. None of us are exceptionally fit, nor are we experienced hikers/climbers so it will certainly be a challenge to say the least.”
The team are busy training in their spare time to make sure they are all prepared for the climb in June, and have already raised £670 towards their £1,000 target.
The Quadram Institute, on the Norwich Research Park, is a state-of-the-art facility for bioscience and clinical research and home to the NNUH Endoscopy Centre.
