Khalsa Aid

"Recognise the whole human race as one"
Khalsa Aid, Llanberis Path
Got to walk up Snowdon with my good friend Georgio Dragonslayer last Saturday to raise monies for the cancer charity Love, Hope and Strength Foundation. The weather was pretty damp, windy and challenging. 

However it all worked out well and we made it up & down safely. Big massive thanks to all our generous sponsors whose donations were an inspiration before, during and after the event.

One of the many enduring memories of the day will be the fellows walkers we met and shared with on the day. As well as the LHS participants there were a number of other groups which made for very busy mountain! 

In particular though I would mention all the many walkers walking to raise funds for the work of Khalsa Aid There were an awful lot of them and they came from all over the UK. We got talking to some guys from Leicester who had left even earlier to get there for the day.

As a group they were very jolly, positive and supportive to all. A mixture of ages they were a credit to the human race, the Sikh Community and the UK. Their base camp supporters/organisers had set up a welcome back area for their walkers as they returned to LLanberis village. They had also prepared food and and bottles of cold water to give to all walkers not just their own. Their generosity and kind spirit will be remembered for a long time by this walker.
