The snow covered mountains of the Brecon Beacons were the latest venue of Springhill Hospice fundraisers. With Baby Springy tagging along for the ride, Kevin Hughes, Peter Clare, Mick Halkyard & Terence Loveridge, took on The Fan Dance. This 24 km grueling non-navigational race over two sides of the highest mountain the Brecon Beacons, Pen Y Fan, is not for the faint hearted. Simply finishing the all-terrain SAS Selection course is an achievement in itself.
The victorious foursome, pictured here at Pen Y Fan’s summit, enjoyed a day of beautiful scenery and a challenging 24km route all in aid of Springhill Hospice.
“We had an excellent day with around 200 other contestants, there were many great compliments made to me as I was carrying Springy on my back for the duration. Although he suffered minor frost bite, he enjoyed the whole experience and expressed a desire to follow us on our next challenge.” said Kevin
“A great experience Kevin and pals and an extreme way of raising money for the Hospice. A fabulous achievement for them and lovely to see Baby Springy getting out and about” said Barbara Lloyd, Springhill’s Community Support Fundraiser.
