Last night...

Amazing and very inspirational evening last night listening to Guy Homan and Dr Malcolm Russell MBE, relay their very extraordinary story of Everest by the West Ridge, a British Army Expedition in 2006. Thankyou so much, we were all enthralled.
This treacherous expedition was made into a documentary called Man V Mountain, which you can buy on DVD. Its certainly worth a watch!
Also thank you for letting us be a part of it, we raised a lot of money last night for Scottys, thanks to everybody that came! I'll get back to you with the actual figure...but remember everything we made will be matched pound for pound by Pelican. Its really going to make a big difference.
Some great prizes won on the raffle!
Thankyou again to everyone and I think i might crack open a Butty Bach now and watch the DVD!

Thankyou once again to Irwin Mitchell.....

...for travelling all the way down to us and setting up a professional photoshoot! And thankyou to www.ptpimages.co.uk for taking our photos. Followed by another great, a little cheeky at times, walk in the Brecon Beacons. This was the FIRST time all of us were walking together and to top it off the sun was shining. Perfect!
