Saying thank you – to a treasured family member and to the beauty of Snowdonia
Earlier this month the Snowdonia Society received a generous donation from long-standing member Richard Bridges in memory of his beloved Auntie Marie (pictured below) who passed away last year.
Richard joined the Society’s Carneddau Scramble in April and told Engagement Officer Claire that his donation is a nod to the beauty of Snowdonia and in memory of Marie, “whose warm personality, house by the sea and lovely home cooking led to many happy childhood memories. She took an interest in and supported me in all my doings, including my love of nature and the outdoors”.
Richard has been a member of the Snowdonia Society for over 30 years and recalls countless climbing trips to the National Park during his time at Warwick University: “So frequent were our visits to Snowdonia that we knew every bend of the A5!”
The Snowdonia Society is very grateful to Richard for the generous donation made in memory of his aunt, and for his commitment to the National Park he loves.
