Event description

Description

Join formerly homeless residents from Emmaus Leeds and challenge yourself to reach the top of Mount Snowdon.

Eight formerly homeless men are taking on Mount Snowdon to raise money and awareness for Emmaus Leeds, the charity that has provided them with a home and fresh opportunities. We're appealing for people to join us on the walk, learn more about what we do and help with the fundraiser.

The walk will raise vital funds to help our companions (people who live, work and are supported at Emmaus Leeds) rebuild their lives. The money will be used for social activities and training, helping our companions to build their confidence and social skills, work/life skills and qualifications.

The aim of Emmaus is to get people back into work and independent living. Our companions volunteer full time in our social enterprise and learn work skills as well as gaining qualifications to ready them for when they choose to move on.

Former companion Nick will be one of our walk leaders, having previously completed Snowdon, Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge twice, all since joining the Emmaus community. Nick commented:

“When I became homeless in 2014 I was offered a room at Emmaus Leeds and became a Companion. I lived and worked in the community and was also involved in several fundraising activities, including walking up Snowdon in 2016. It was an amazing experience and now I get to do it again. This time I am a volunteer at Emmaus as I recently moved into my own flat and got a full time job, but I still volunteer one day a week and love it! I'm so proud to be able to act as a walk leader for this year’s challenge and inspire a group of new companions"
