FUNDRAISERS from Times Territory had a mountain to climb, literally, when they attempted a charity hike.
Employees at funeral directors Coughlan Brothers, in Southfield, WGC, headed to Wales on Friday, to climb Mount Snowdon in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Standing at 3,560ft above sea level, Snowdon is the highest mountain in England and Wales, and known locally as Yr Wyddfa, or "The Tomb".
The 13-strong group hiked up the mountain on Saturday, heading down that same evening.

The attempt was the first of three fundraisers organised by Coughlan Brothers this year, as they bid to raise at least �6,000 for the London children's hospital. The mountain trek has brought in �2,400 so far.
A 24-hour go-kart race and a charity ball are scheduled for later in the year.

Funeral director Grant Pinney said: "Great Ormond Street relies solely on donations, but if everyone relies on everyone else to donate, then no-one will."
