St Mungo’s climbs Ben Nevis

In 2017 we conquered Mount Snowdon. Last year we took on Scafell Pike. This year Team Mungo’s took on Britain’s highest peak, Ben Nevis.

These hikes help inspire everyone at St Mungo’s, giving us a focus to work towards as well as creating a sense of accomplishment and community. To mark our 50th year 50 clients, staff members and volunteers joined staff from our sponsor Tokio Marine and succeeded in climbing the highest peak in Great Britain. “The weather was against us but we made it!”
