Family smash Snowdon goal

AN INTREPID family have scaled Snowdown to raise money for a charity close to their hearts.

Joe Lacks, joined by his dad Godfrey, brothers Simon and Paul Douglas, and friends Eddie Morgan and Scott Emes, tackled the mountain of a challenge to boost funds for mental health charity Mind.

The team decided to embark on the hike after Joe was diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder in 2013.

He said: “I wanted to raise some awareness about mental health and for others not to suffer alone because getting the right help is part of getting better. So I did a bit of research and Mind was the charity for us.”

The group smashed their goal of conquering Snowdon in six hours after making the trek both up and down the moutain in four hours and forty minutes on June 19.

Joe and his team raised £330 for Mind and a further £93 for Gift Aid.
