It’s just 31 days until Hereford United Supporters & HUST Members Jack James & Kristina Guntulytė climb/walk/scramble/hike to Wales’ highest peak via the Miner’s Track. The journey to the summit and subsequently back down is said to take around 5 to 6 hours in total and the pair have been scaling the Malvern Hills & the Brecon Beacons in training over the past couple of weeks and have more training planned before tackling Snowdon.
Since announcing their climb 13 days ago, they’ve managed to raise over £600 for 3 separate causes and are said to be chuffed to bits with the support they’ve received so far. The primary focus of the fund raising being for the Hereford United Supporters Trust, but also supporting two great charities wholly supported by HUST, the Adam Stansfield Foundation & the newly rebranded United in the Community. Both of these charities strive to promote youth football & develop skills within the community amongst other aims. Which is something that HUST are very supportive of.
The proportion that will be received by each charity is determined entirely by how much is raised;
Up to £1000 – ASF & UITC receive 10% each
£1001 - £1500 – ASF & UITC receive 15% each
£1501 - £2000 – ASF & UITC receive 20% each
£2001 or above – ASF & UITC receive 25% each
It is also possible to specify that your donation goes to specifically to one or two of these causes should you so wish. Just let us know on donation.
The amount raised for the Hereford United Supporters Trust will be directly ring-fenced towards the purchase of shares in Hereford United Football Club (1939) Ltd. This is so that the supporters of Hereford United can have a greater say in the ongoings at each level of the football club through the Supporters Trust. This is the main aim of the fundraising as specified by HUST Members Jack and Kris.
The pair are in a battle to see who raises the most sponsorship, with Team Kris currently leading by a solitary pound. Whilst there is also the prize of a signed Wayne Brown Superman T-shirt for the highest individual sponsor (Currently £50). They are also looking for items to take to the summit to represent Hereford United amongst upto 150 representatives from Wrexham (who have organised the event through their supporters trust) and upto 148 other supporters from other clubs around the country. So if you have something that you'd like to see at the top of snowdon let us know and as long as it isn't big, heavy or awkward, Jack will carry it to the summit.
