One of our sopranos is stepping out to really go for the high notes – of the sterling variety.
Intrepid Eileen Roberts is undertaking the 35-mile Llangollen Round Challenge to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
She is due to join hundreds of other walkers putting their best feet forward on the weekend of June 2 and 3 on the popular circular route, which visits every summit around the Vale of Llangollen in north east Wales.
Its total ascent is around 2,000 the equivalent, say the organisers, of going up Snowdon twice over.
Eileen who is aiming to raise £1,000, has set up a JustGiving page and is urging people to contribute to the cause.
“Like many people, cancer has affected many of my close friends and relatives,” she says. “This is a chance for me to support an excellent cause by walking in the beautiful valley where I grew up. Let’s hope for good weather!”
