It's great to get away from the bustle of city life and escape in to a place of beauty.

Introducing Meningitis Now safety team member Craig Patrick Saunders

Day Job - Operations Supervisor - currently employed by DPWorld London Gateway

My favourite part of being a member of the Meningitis Now safety team - is knowing that by volunteering my time I can help many many people. It's a great feeling knowing that I am actively helping others to reach their goals and raise funds for such a worthy cause. 

Dislikes it when - I run out of Nutella! The chocolatey paste is legendary

Likes it when - I'm away hiking or scrambling in the mountains! It's great to get away from the bustle of city life and escape in to a place of beauty.

So you are about to embark on a mountainous trekking event and you want to start training. The best training that I can recommend is to actually find some local hills and to start climbing them, all aspects of cardio workouts will help you but climbing local hills on a regular basis is the way to go.  

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.
