The Climbing Out Snowdonia Challenge was a great success on October 9th and we were delighted to be part of the day with all the finishers being presented with pin badges donated by us to the Climbing Out charity.
We are a great supporter of Kelda Wood MBE and her charity which is doing such a wonderful job in helping young people coming to terms with life-changing mental or physical trauma or illness, and the Snowdonia Challenge was the latest event to raise the all-important funds which help to keep the charity running.
Marking the day
We previously supplied Kelda with 300 promotional pin badges and were delighted to see them being presented to walkers at the end of the challenge. A donation of 500 more will soon be delivered to ensure those taking part in activities over the coming year will receive one too.
Our very own Richard Hughes and two friends took part in the hike – taking on the full Llyn Idwal, Y Garn plus Elidir Fawr to Deiniolen challenge totalling 16.5km and 928m ascent! We would like to pass on our congratulations to all those who took part, raising a lot of money for this most worthy of causes.
Kelda said: “Chrisbeon have been incredible in their support of Climbing Out for a number of years now. Not only have they helped us by donating numerous items for our office and admin, but they’ve taken a really personal approach in their support.
“It was fantastic to see Richard joining us on our fundraising hike for the fourth year running, and we handed out pin badges donated by Chrisbeon to everyone who completed the hike. We are incredibly grateful to Chrisbeon for their support.”
We are not just about stationery!
It may come as a surprise to some people to learn that Chrisbeon doesn’t just provide furniture, stationery and other equipment for the home and office – we have an extensive and varied range of other items available. Check out our extensive catalogue here.
This includes the lapel pin badges, a cost-effective way of promoting your business, charity, organisation – or anything else you want to highlight. They can be made to your own bespoke shape and design and come in several sizes.
We can provide you with enamel badges, printed epoxy resin lapel pin badges, aluminium clutch pin badges and button badges. The metal badges are made from partly recycled material and can be recycled easily after use. Plastic badges are made from recycled plastic – fulfilling our ongoing commitment to the environment.
More about Climbing Out
The Climbing Out charity has been making a difference for more than a decade helping people coming to terms with life-changing mental or physical trauma or illness, and is back in full swing again with its full programme of events following the restrictions of Covid.
Places are still available on Climbing Out programmes this year, which includes the periodic walk and talk days designed to bring people who are facing similar challenges together to help them regain their confidence by getting out and about, and the five-day outdoor activity programmes designed to help people rebuild their confidence and self-esteem.
Climbing Out provides the tools to help people who have been through a difficult experience to rebuild their lives through outdoor activities. The charity has been successful in supporting victims of bullying and abuse, survivors of crime and terrorism, people with life-changing illnesses, and those with disabilities, vision and hearing impairments.
Places are also offered to members of the armed forces, including veterans, reservists and their families, members of the NHS and emergency services who are coming to terms with physical or mental trauma.
