Medwyn masters Montenegro challenge
A FINANCE firm boss from Anglesey has raised more than £3,500 after taking part in a marathon Montenegro mountain charity challenge.
Medwyn Edwards, Joint Founding Director of Hadlow Edwards Wealth Management, completed the three-day, three-peak, 40-mile coastal challenge along the Dinaric Alps in Montenegro despite treacherous, torrential rain.
Medwyn, originally from Bryngwran, was part of a 70-strong group taking part and raising money for the St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation, the charitable arm of wealth management organisation St. James’s Place.
Medwyn, 57, set up his firm with fellow founding director Warren Hadlow in 2000 and last year, they expanded into the former Wrexham Lager building which is now home to their 25-strong team. The firm is a representative of St. James’s Place Wealth Management and Medwyn has taken part in charity challenges they have organised before including treks through the Picos De Europa in Northern Spain, the Julian Alps in Slovenia and Mount Olympus in Greece.
Challenges are held every year to help raise money for the Charitable Foundation set up in 1992 to award grants to charities registered in the UK, with more than £80 million raised to date.In total, the latest trek has raised £127,000 which will be doubled by St. James’s Place.
