Hope Communities chief executive climbed Mount Snowdon at the weekend to raise money for the Worksop and Retford-based charity.

Alan Diggles climbed the mountain on the morning of Saturday 14th June and finished later that afternoon after a gruelling trek.

He is hoping to raise £500 in total.

He said: “The climb took around two-and-a-half hours.”

“It was 10.30am when we got there.”

“The weather was absolutely glorious all weekend.”

“I thought it would be a successful way to raise money.”

The cash generated will be spent on services provided by the charity and the clients that it helps out.

Mount Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales and the highest point in the British Isles that is outside the Scottish Highlands, as it is elevated 1,085 metres above sea level.

Hope’s mission is to promote social inclusion and ensure there are pathways for positive lifestyle choices for those who are outside of mainstream services.

The charity aims are to reduce homelessness and to tackle the causes of it.

So far this year the charity has already supported over 800 homeless people .

Their emergency accommodation has also given out more than 150 food parcels to people.
