Musical santas perform festive hits on top of Snowdon

Laura Kearns 26th Dec, 2016   0

A TEAM of music-loving santas have performed at the country’s highest party – on top of Snowdon.

The 14-strong group from Warwickshire Association of Youth Clubs (WAYC) took only a few hours to reach the summit, where they performed four festive hits.

They have raised more than £1,500 – which will go towards WAYC’s Sharp Minds programme, supporting young people with mental and emotional health difficulties.

Community fund-raiser, David Skoppek said: “This was the perfect way for us to end 2016. Our santas were fantastic and we were able to do something truly special for a very worthy cause. Right now, according to Young Minds, three children in every classroom have a mental health problem. This is a massive problem for our society but WAYC does wonderful work in this area and we are seeing lives transformed. Events like this will help us to continue this service.”
