Helpwch ni i achub YHA yr Wyddfa Bryn Gwynant
Big plans for a location we can’t lose
Since 1959, this grand old lakeside lodge has welcomed more than half a million YHA guests. Surrounded by exhilarating mountain scenery, it’s a stunning place to stay. But our beloved building is tired. Too tired to continue as a hostel without major building work. And we cannot guarantee its future without your help. We have ambitious plans to save Bryn. With your help, we will restore the house, set up a dedicated fund to support breaks to Bryn for young people with challenging lives, and establish the first YHA Campus here: a pioneering work-skills programme to get young people into jobs. The cost of doing all this is £2m. The bare minimum we need to raise is £500k – but if we raise more than this we’ll be able to invest more in other charitable activities and begin to restore the splendour of the grounds.
Jo stayed at YHA Snowdon Bryn Gwynant on the biggest day of her life. Since the age of 12, she has suffered from chronic and debilitating pain. It’s got in the way of everything she loves to do. But five years ago, she took on the biggest mountain in England and Wales as part of her recovery journey.
