Lenstec Optical employees climb Mount Snowden to raise money for local school

15 Sep 2016 by Emily McCormick

A team of Lenstec Optical employees have climbed the highest mountain in Wales to raise funds for a local primary school.

The group of 11 staff members scaled Mount Snowden to raise money for St James Primary School, close to where the company has offices based in Caerphilly.

It took the team six hours to complete the 10-mile trek and they raised £380 for the school, which will put towards the purchase of a new school bus for the disabled.

Speaking about the challenge, climber and general manager at Lenstec Optical, Matthew Castle, said:  “It was a great team-building exercise, as well as being a memorable experience.”

The employees are already planning their next fundraising challenge to support the school, Mr Castle confirmed.
