After all the hard work the team did in 2009 the directors at Williams Denton decided to send a donation to them rather than send Christmas cards out.

Williams Denton sent eCards to everyone registered on their website. They then decided to donate 50p for each eCard sent, totalling £217, to a worthy local charity which was the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team.

They were chosen for a number of reasons. The team is made up entirely of volunteers who live close to Snowdon. Mountain guides and instructors, teachers, plumbers, doctors, park wardens, builders, nuclear engineers and business consultants - all and more can be found in the team. All are skilled and experienced mountaineers. Turning out in all weathers, day or night, 365 days a year, they share a common purpose - to help anyone who is in trouble on the hills.

Colin Bell, director at Williams Denton had this to say, “The Llanberis team have rescued more and more people in the Snowdon area over the last few years. As we have many frequent walkers in the area we thought it would be great to show our appreciation to this worthy charity.”

Williams Denton focus on sorting peoples accounts out and helping with tax problems. Their  website shows the varied services they provide to their extensive client list.

When presented with the cheque from Williams Denton Berwyn Hughes, treasurer of LMRT said, “Volunteer work and the charitable donations are the lifeblood of the team. Snowdon is arguably the busiest mountain in Britain. Many visitors to Wales are determined to walk or climb to the summit. The volume of visitors has increased dramatically over the years, which equates to an increase in the rescues needed and equally the funds.”
