Poddi’s supported charity, Dan’s Uphill Struggle, is raising money to get Southampton resident and father of four Dan Galley to the top of Mount Snowdon.
In March 2020 Dan was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, shortly before Covid locked down the UK. This meant that Dan’s planned climb of the highest mountain in Wales with his family and a small number of friends could not go ahead. In 2021 although now society is re-opening, Dan’s condition has deteriorated to the point that he would be physically unable to make the climb to Snowdon’s summit.
So that Dan’s able to enjoy the ascent for one last time, a number of friends – ‘The Sherpas’ – will pull, push and carry him to the top of Snowdon in a specially built wheelchair. Poddi’s money will help cover the cost of putting on the event, such as making the wheelchair and transporting Dan and his Sherpas to Wales.
