As we have previously mentioned, Calan DVS’s CEO, Rhian Bowen-Davies, took on the Wales 3 peaks challenge on September 8th.
Rhian climbed Snowdon and Cadair Idris in North Wales, and Pen-y-fan in the Brecon Beacons, all in one day to raise funds to enable Calan DVS to continue providing invaluable services for individuals and families experiencing domestic abuse in Neath Port Talbot. The money raised will help ensure the continuation of crucial intervention and support services, such as counselling for children, adults and young people.
Rhian has been working hard and training consistently in the weeks leading up to her challenge, and was reaching the peak of Pen-y-Fan in 45 minutes. The staff at Calan gifted Rhian a mini Dora the Explorer doll to act as a mascot throughout her training and the challenge itself. Dora has certainly been treated to some amazing views of the Welsh countryside.
Rhian and her fellow climbers started the day at sunrise in Snowdon, and ended it with the sunset on Pen-y-Fan; completing the entire challenge in an impressive 15 hours and 20 minutes. Rhian has said that it was a completely amazing experience.
Rhian and Calan DVS would like to thank everyone for their support and words of encouragement leading up to the challenge, and look forward to securing the crucial services offered by Calan DVS.
