Our Ebrahim College faculty and supporters took on the 1,085m climb up Snowdon on Saturday, 24th November 2018. The event was organised by Seekers Quest and we were delighted to have 32 brave brothers and sisters battle through temperatures of -5 with wind chill, and wind speeds over 30mph to support educational projects for Syrian refugee children (via registered UK charity Islamic Help) and students of Islamic knowledge.
The trekkers began their journey on Friday night, setting off from Ebrahim College on a 9 hour coach journey to Snowdonia National Park, Wales. On arrival, participants freshened up, put on their trekking gear and were briefed by experienced guides about the day’s challenge and safety precautions. The participants began their climb through the blistering cold and rocky terrain at 08:30 am and reached the top of the summit at 12:30, where they were faced by mesmerising scenes, subhannallah.
All participants completed their days climb and descent by 16:30, with no injuries, alhumdullilah, and raised a whopping £12,384.00, with donations still coming in. You can still support our participants efforts by making a donation at www.justgiving.com/teams/tsqseason6.
We would like to thank all of our supporters for their bravery and generosity towards this event, and send a special thank you to The Seeker’s Quest for organising and making this mammoth challenge possible.
