Jurassic HikeFour heroic teams are taking part in an incredible undertaking in aid of a local charity. In an event organised by Oswestry Cambrian Rotary Club and The British Ironwork Centre, with brave supporters from Fusion Arts, Elite Fitness and Oswestry Cross Fit will be taking on a tough four hour hike to the summit of Mount Snowdon, but this is no regular mountain trek. Each team will be carrying far more than the ordinary supplies, a T-Rex sculpture weighing in at over 200kg will be travelling with them!

 The spectacular dinosaur will be dismantled and carried in parts by each of the participants, to make things even harder it will then be re-assembled once they reach the top. Man made straps and specially customised logs will be used to help carry this mammoth sculpture 1085 meters to the peak. It is hoped that through this amazing challenge more than £5000 can be raised for Hope House Children’s Hospice with over £100 already donated.
