Local Olympians complete Snowdonia challenge raising funds for Wiltshire Air Ambulance

We did it!  Wiltshire Air Ambulance team at the summit of Mount Snowdon - Shelley Rudman in the white kagoolWe did it! Wiltshire Air Ambulance team at the summit of Mount Snowdon - Shelley Rudman in the white kagoolSkeleton bobsleigh Olympians Shelley Rudman and her husband, Kristan Bromley, led a team of thirteen to complete a challenge in Snowdonia on Saturday (June 8) - raising £7,200 to support the work of Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

 

The thirteen members of the team, which included Wiltshire Air Ambulance critical care paramedics Richard Miller and Ben Abbott and their friend and paramedic Simon Stigwood, faced torrential rain and cold temperatures. The challenge included a twelve mile cycle ride around the base of Mount Snowdon before trekking to the summit. The challenge ended with kayaking on a lake.

Shelley, who lives in the Pewsey Vale, said: “I’ve not been to Snowdon before so it was a good challenge for me. Although it was disappointing we didn’t get to see the spectacular views from the top of Snowdon due to limited vision and non-stop onslaught of rain, we all thought it made the event so much more of a challenge to accomplish."

“We were all really pleased we took on the challenge - it was a really good mixture of adventure, teamwork, challenge and accomplishments. Being with a genuinely lovely group of people was also fantastic."

"We all supported and helped each other, even though many of us hadn’t met before, and this made it much more of a team event with lots of laughter."

“Throughout it all, the donations and support we have received from friends, family and the public has been fantastic and thank you to everyone who has donated.”

Kenresa Stratford, events co-ordinator at Wiltshire Air Ambulance, who was among the support team on the day, paid tribute to the unwavering commitment of the participants in the difficult weather conditions:  “The event went really well. We had such a determined group and nothing was going to stop them, even when at the summit we were all soaked through, cold and hungry, we still made the best of the situation and kept going!" 

“I’d like to thank everyone for their efforts and their fundraising, which will enable us to continue saving lives.

Wiltshire Air Ambulance has been saving lives for more than 29 years. It is operational up to 19 hours a day, 365 days a year, covering Wiltshire and surrounding counties.
