Dynamic duo crush sea to summit Snowdon challenge, raising over £6000 for Welsh charity

Two well-respected business leaders from Wales have completed the Sea to Summit Snowdon challenge in north Wales and raised over £6,000 for Business Beats Cancer Cymru, in aid of Cancer Research UK. Sarah Williams-Gardener is Co-chair of Business Beats Cancer Cymru as well as Chair of Fintech Wales, and she joined forces with Louise O’Shea, CFC’s Group Chief Executive Officer to form a wider team who together cycled 16km, hiked 16km and kayaked 4km to reach the summit in one day.

Blessed with kind weather, they were rewarded with stunning views from the summit of Snowdon, and all money raised from this challenge will help fund the lifesaving Cancer Research UK projects already taking place across Wales. The board of directors who manage Business Beats Cancer Cymru raised over £55k back in November during their first gala dinner event hosted at the Principality Stadium and the next gala dinner event is pencilled in for Thursday 6 February 2025.

Sarah said of the challenge: “Having survived this indiscriminate disease myself, I hope to inspire those currently going through treatment that there are more adventures to be enjoyed. By undertaking this awesome challenge, the money we’ve raised will fund leading edge research across Welsh projects, ultimately helping more people survive and thrive.”
