Paul on Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon)

Brief BIO about Paul

Day Job in Computer Support, including ExxonMobil (ESSO), National Air Traffic (NATS), London Underground, Slaughter & May,  The England & Wales Cricket Board and some Schools both Senior and Junior.

In Paul’s Younger days was regularly visiting North Wales, Mid Wales, Brecon Beacons, Dartmoor, North York Moors, Lake District, Fort William.

Paul has run a half marathon in 1 hour 48minutes, 3 Peaks Challenge (Snowdon, Sca Fell & Ben Nevis) in aid of Cystic Fibrosis in less than 24 hours. Paul has also climbed Snowdon plenty of times and in all weathers both Summer and Winter.

Introduced his children in 2005 and 2012 when they both climbed Snowdon for the first time, aged 5 and 9 respectively and myself older!!

June 2009 was a VIP guest for the official opening of Hafod Eryri.

Last on the Mountain in 2012 – with Son and Daughter – and  a new route for all of us from Rhyd Dhu. A great route although couldn’t see much in August 2012.

Paul will be walking with his Son

EPG4632Paul is Qualified Sports Coach – Football Level 2 and Cricket Level 3. Coaching is mainly Cricket due to the economics. Paul coaches at a number of Cricket Club in his home region, both indoors and outdoors. Paul is also looking for an indoor venue, school or a building that would convert to indoor cricket nets / futsal / 5 a side to allow all year round use and importantly revenue. So could become an Academy and training centre used and ratified by the relevant sport governing body, with all attending far and wide due to its coaching reputation – a building has been identified!!

Paul would love this to be the day and evening job!!

Looking forward to getting back to the region and and achieving this Walk on Wales – WOW.

Paul’s chosen Charities for this walk are:

target’s is the wrong word I think – but yes I would like to raise as much as possible.

> £5000.00 for each would be great

If I could then divide in two I would. The Just Giving Pages mean the money goes straight to the charities include the Government’s “tax” addon, so every pound you donate means they get 25% more – that’s £1.25 / 125p for every pound – got to be a good thing

I will return to the Vaynols Arms Nant Peris (not far from Llanberis)  – with a monster charity cheque – just for the photo opportunity for the charity and a beer or two at the Vaynols Arms.

I also hope to setup some form of phone text number o you can also Just Give as gibing so you can be smart by using your mobile phone.
