Stange takes on Snowdonia…
As a group we are taking on the challenge of walking 18 miles over 5 of the 14 peaks of the Welsh 3000s. The tough and mountainous walk takes us from Carnedd Dafydd to Conwy Castle where we will finish up at The Erskine Arms for a celebratory pint!
The challenge has been created to support the “Let’s Go Green” campaign raising money for a new cancer centre in Liverpool as well as improving Clatterbridge hospital on the Wirral. The walk is in memory of Ralph Leech who passed away earlier this year. He was a dear friend to many and long serving member of Stange & Co. as well as the popular landlord at the Fox & Hounds pub on the Wirral for the past 33 years. Clatterbridge hospital helped him and his family during his battle with cancer offering fantastic support and constant reassurance from the doctors and nurses. The hospital has also helped other members of our team and their family overcome their battles with cancer and we want to say thank you.
We therefore want to give back to the cause and help raise as much money as we can for the new cancer centre. This is a huge challenge for some of the team who wouldn’t normally embark on such a physical task but hopefully with your support it will encourage them to not only take on such a challenge but smash it on the day!
The walk will take place on Thursday 26th April starting at dawn and finishing sometime around sunset at the pub (depending on how we get on!)

Our pubs like to feature either a charity dish on their menu or a chairty beer on their bar which for every dish or pint sold then a percentage of the takings go to the local chosen charity.
