Safety Crew

Hi my name is Ash. In my day life I am a Regional Manager for an electric car brand.

What is the best part of being a Safety Team member? – My favourite part of being part of the safety team is seeing all the participants bonding together all for the cause of raising money for Meningitis Now!

I dislike it when. . . my biscuit falls into my tea whilst enjoying the mountains views.

I like it when. . . I see the team complete the challenge and the immense pride they take in this.

Best piece of advice to someone starting their training? If I could give you one piece of advice it would be to make sure you get a pair of really well fitting boots. Many great outdoor retailers offer a fitting service and it really is time well spent once you are out on the hills.

Our UK treks and challenges couldn’t go ahead without our invaluable safety team and qualified mountain leaders. Each and every one of them retain expert knowledge, understanding and a passion for outdoor pursuits and the mountains we climb. They are on hand to ensure the wellbeing of our participants, navigating them through each trek safely and providing words of encouragement to help everyone complete their challenge.
