Family take on epic challenge for children’s charity 

 Published on: 15th September 2018   |   By: Jason Allen   |   Category: Uncategorized

A family from Stanmore, including two children aged nine and 12, have climbed Mount Snowdon to raise money for a children’s charity. 

Parents Rajeev and Varsha Doshi were joined by their children Rian, nine, and Anaya, 12, for the five hours climb which has left them eager to take on a bigger challenge. 

The climb to the summit of Wales’ highest peak was for Action for Children, a charity chosen by Rian and Anaya who cited the charity’s role as organisers for day trips for carers and children as a reason to support them. 

Rajeev told My Stanmore News: “We are both really proud of our children, firstly for choosing such a worthwhile charity and second for their positive attitude throughout. 

“My son actually did all the research on which route up to take and I think he got the biggest buzz from reaching the top. He keeps talking about climbing mountains now.

“The climb did have some challenging sections but the views were so beautiful on the way up, none of us complained. It was harder in parts to come down with some steep sections on very unstable ground.”

The family plan to tackle Ben Nevis next.
