We are blessed at Meningitis Now to have an incredible bunch of volunteers who, year after year, escort our trekkers up and down the highest mountains in the UK – and now we’d like to thank these heroes
Come rain or shine (and, sometimes, sideways hail) these volunteers offer encouragement, motivation and support to our trekking participants.
It is very hard to put in to words how grateful we are to them for giving up their weekends and time off work to safely guide and transport our team to and from each peak. Taking part in our Three Peaks Challenge is no mean feat; not only are our trekkers expected to climb the actual mountains, they do so with little sleep, spending 36 hours on and off a coach. Our Safety Team go through the same experience and no matter how tired they feel they remain positive, professional and are always happy to answer questions and offer advice and guidance.
Watching our Safety Team at work really is a humbling experience and there are no words to express how much they mean to us.
So a HUGE thank you goes to:
Steve, our Mountain Leader, for being an absolute legend; and Tony, Jason, Jo, Richard, Nige, Nic, Cathy, Phil, Pete, Paul, Rach, Oli, Huw, Craig, Geoff, Ash and Tim for being equally as awesome.
We love working with them and appreciate everything that they do for us!
