Starbucks staff from 18 stores across Birmingham, Walsall and Coventry have successfully completed a climb to the summit of Mount Snowden on behalf of British based charity Send a Cow which supports projects across East Africa, including Kenya.

At the summit, the team took part in a high altitude coffee tasting.

In doing so, they smashed their £650 target and at the time of writing had raised £922.

Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level, and the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands. It is located in Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd.

The mountain was also one of the three peaks climbed by British Gathimba Edwards Foundation fundraiser Abi Lyall last month.

International Development charity Send a Cow have been working with some of Africa’s poorest families for nearly 30 years, helping over 1.3 million people work their way out of extreme poverty.

They provide livestock, tools, seeds and training as part of a programme giving people the hope and means to establish a future for themselves, their families and their wider communities.

Currently, they are delivering programmes in seven African countries: Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Lesotho, and Zambia.
