Footballers take on Mount Snowdon
A TEAM of Clevedon footballers conquered Mount Snowdon to raise money for a good cause.
A group of seven players from Clevedon Crusaders climbed the Welsh mountain on September 10 to collect cash for the intensive care unit at the Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI).
The climb was organised in memory of the group’s good friend Paul Thorogood who died in 2007 aged just 22.
Paul was crushed between a wall and a pick-up truck while restoring a stone wall. He was taken to the intensive care unit at the BRI where he was cared for over two days before he died.
The group of climbers was made up of 18-year-old Aaron Thorogood, 26-year-olds Billy Wright, Dave Carey and Tim Blackman, 25-year-old Leigh Giles, 17-year-old Carl Aldom and 29-year-old Matt Cushing.
