The Snowdonia Seven is this year supporting a worthy charitable cause, and one of ‘ours’.  Please read on for a bit about it and how to join in.



I am one of the organising team for a charity event in the Lake district which takes part annually in aid of COPS.

We started it to raise money for the children of one of our DC’s who was sadly killed in a domestic homicide several years ago and have continued each year with the event. C.O.P.S. is now our main charity.

Teams from all over the UK from various other Police forces, businesses and other emergency services take part, which entails teams ascending a selected Wainwright peak and illuminating a blue flair simultaneously at 0300 hrs.

Following this, there is a get together at Brathay Hall in Ambleside which involves a raffle, speeches, bbq and beer. The Ex-Chief Constable of Cumbria is a constant participant at the event. Our main sponsor is Wainwrights brewery….

Several years ago I took part in the Snowdonia 7 challenge for which I think my legs never recovered. This was a great event and I am contacting you to make a request, that you kindly share with any participants of your event that you felt would be interested in taking part.  Obviously we would love a team or three from yourselves to come along too.

If you’d like to know more about the event and join us on the day please visit the link here.    On Facebook   Or to read more about C.O.P.S. visit their website here.



Kind regards,



Temporary Detective Inspector 3084 | Surrey Police
