#TeamOrange trekkers conquer Mount Snowdon
Our intrepid #TeamOrange volunteers reached new heights at the weekend – they conquered Mount Snowdon!
A group of 50 trekkers took on the challenge to provide clean water to the people of Nepal.
“We set off in the evening, so as we were climbing #TeamOrange got to see the sky turn orange at sunset!” said Khalil Benkhalil, Fundraising & Challenges Coordinator.
“It was an amazing experience. The climb was tough, but everyone did brilliantly and we raised enough to build over 50 hand pumps in Nepal.”

#TeamOrange bungee jumpers help Syria bounce back
Daring members of #TeamOrange did a 160ft bungee jump at the weekend to help the people of Syria.
They raised thousands of pounds, which will go on to provide emergency food and medical aid for Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
“It was an amazing experience, with lots of people doing a bungee jump for the first time,” said Khalil Benkhalil, Fundraising Officer.
“There were some nerves, but we got through it thanks to the beautiful London skyline, a few words of encouragement and knowing that we were doing it to help others.”
