Volcano challenge isn't too hot to handle for Trafford quartet
WHEN it comes to fundraising challenges, they don’t get much hotter than this one.
A group of four Trafford women have helped to raise £8,000 for the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust by scaling a three volcanoes in Italy.
The quartet were members of a six-strong team that tackled Mount Vesuvius, Mount Etna and Stromboli to raise cash for disadvantaged youngsters.
Spokesman Lisa Donovan from Timperley, said: “It was amazing, out of this world and the tour was so well organised. Etna was the tallest one - we were ablee to climb to about 3,200 feet - and there was a massive eruption 10 years ago. We actually stood in the crater and put our hands over the steam that’s still coming out. It was a mind blowing experience and a great charity to be able to do it for.”
Te 42-year-old painter and decorator from Park Road said the team she was a member of - Team Wild Fire - is hoping to raise £10,000 for the CAFT and she had nothing but praise for the charity’s work.
She said: “I have two children and fortunately my kids have been okay. We’ve had a look around the facilities they provide and it’s just outstanding. The music room blew my mind. For children who can’t move there’s a microphone they put by their eyes and when they blink it makes sound.”
The other members of the group were Simone Breedon from Timperley, Caroline Evers, from Altrincham, Dawn Gross, from Hale, Dawn Cantarelli and Nicola Taylor Jones.
