They raised a fantastic £4,000 for Woodlands Hospice

Billy Hughes and members of his family and friends took on the Snowdon challenge early in September 2016 in memory of Janice Hughes – a beloved wife, mother, daughter and nanny, in order to raise moeny for Woodlands Hospice.

Janice’s daughter Christina set up a Just Giving page to secure donations and sponsorship for the challenge and explained that during her mum’s final weeks she was cared for at Woodlands, where she was "treated with dignity and given the support and comfort she needed".

She went on to say. “We wanted to raise as much money as possible so that others have the same level of care as our lovely mum who was so loved and is missed so much”.

The family have raised an amazing £4,000 for the Hospice which is a fantastic result.  The Hospice is very grateful to Billy, his family and friends for choosing to support them through their challenge.

The photographs show the group who took on the challenge, and the other is of Billy (Janice’s husband), his grandson Jack and the youngest member of the Snowdon Challenge group who is his cousin Bud (James).
