Ten intrepid members of the Verto team are set to pack their thermal vests and waterproofs and trek to the top of Mount Snowdon in support of a local charity.

The trip, which will take place over the bank holiday weekend, will also see us camping out for a couple of nights as we plan our ascent. Overall, we're hoping to raise up to £1,000 for the Cynthia Spencer Hospice in Northampton and with Snowdon requiring a four hour drive from our Kettering home, we'll have plenty of time to psych ourselves up for the challenges that lie ahead.

Anyone wishing to sponsor us can make donations quickly and easily online at:

We thank you for your support and will provide a full account of our adventure after the event!
