‘Walk for Waste’ event to raise money for third-world waste projects

A sponsored walk to Mount Snowdon has been set up to raise money for third-world countries in need of waste services

The vice chair of the Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee, Sally Talbot, has organised a ‘Walk for Waste’ charity fundraising event to raise money for waste projects in third-world countries.

Those who sign up will be walking to the peak of Mount Snowdon on Saturday, July 16 in an attempt to raise as much money as possible for charity organisation WasteAidUK, which offers financial support and advice to third-world communities that need implementing sustainable waste solutions.

The 10 mile walk up to the highest Welsh peak begins at 6pm, with the decent to finish by around 11pm. The aim of the walk is to watch the sunset at the top of Mount Snowdon, a height of over 3,500 feet. Walkers of all abilities are invited to sign up and the organisers are hoping to attract around 200 people.

Organisers are expecting each walker to raise a minimum of £50 and an additional £20, which will go towards hiring a professional team of mountain guides.

WasteAidUK was founded by waste management experts to offer support to communities within developing countries which are suffering from severe health issues due to poor sanitation and a distinct lack of waste systems. WasteAidUK helps these communities implement affordable waste services to create a safer environment.
