Snowdon National Park in North Wales is known for beautiful rugged landscapes and amazing trekking and outdoor pursuits and is the highest mountain in England and Wales at 1085m.

A popular summit by day, this exciting new trek offers a challenge trekking at night. Standing at the summit in the moonlight will be an unforgettable experience as you will watch the sunrise from the mountain slopes. As you descend, the stunning landscapes will open up as the day grows lighter.

Can you do it? Yes you can!

A good level of fitness is required for this trek and training is advised. The Snowdon by Night Trek involves trekking in the dark making the rugged terrain more demanding.

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.

£56 could pay for three hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.

£37 could pay for one Lymphoedema appointment to ease swelling and symptoms for someone with cancer.

£23 could pay for an hour with our bereavement counsellor, supporting families  through the loss of a loved one.
