A group of 74 people carried an entire fibreglass farm 4.5 miles up to Snowdon’s peak in order to raise funds for R.A.B.I and the DPJ Foundation.
The hike was organised by educational farming group Cows on Tour, who set off on their week-long tour of schools in Wales on May 13. Their aim is to educate children about life as a farmer, while also raising funds for the two farming charities. Find out more about the tour here.
The group completed the hike up the mountain’s Llanberis trail in 3 hours and 20 minutes. Abi Reader, Cows on Tour founder, said: “We took a 90kg model dairy cow and also had a life-size model pig, sheep and lamb and a giant leek and potato.”
Supporters took turns carrying Bessie, the model cow, while the Owen children carried the piglet and lamb.
Abi added: “It was fantastic how many people stopped to ask us what we were doing, especially on our descent when many strangers took photos and donated money for our charities.”
