True Colours scales new heights for charity

Mount Snowdon in Wales isn't even the highest mountain in the UK, let alone Europe or the world - but it provided a tough challenge that enabled a UK distributor to raise significant funds for a children's charity.

Staff from True Colours, the UK distributor of technical AV solutions for digital signage, live events, installation and integration projects, have scaled Mount Snowdon in Wales to raise money for the Rainbow Trust children’s charity. At just over 1,000 metres, it is not the UK’s highest mountain – but it is acknowledged to be one of the most challenging.

A ten-strong team of climbers tackled the infamous Snowdon Horseshoe - the route that includes Crib Goch, a notorious knife edge ridge that requires experience of scrambling and a good head for heights.

“The event was great fun and the weather conditions were absolutely perfect,” said Iain Campbell, sales and marketing director at True Colours. “It was a formidable challenge but we managed to scale four peaks in seven hours, including the summit of Snowdon, and raised around £1,500 for the Rainbow Trust children’s charity. I’m really proud of my team and we would like to thank everybody that sponsored us.”

The True Colours team was bolstered by the support of Stuart Humphries, UK sales manager at Magenta Research.
