Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be so keen as I am to challenge myself and raise thousands for charity.
Now I look back at my photos and videos of Everest Base Camp, Ben Nevis, Snowden, Scafell Pike and other treks and I am amazed it's me.
The Trekking side is mainly me challenging me. To me, failure is not an option!! The power of the love inside me drives me towards my peak AND to raise the peak higher! However, Lilly, the 19 year old young lady with full Alzheimer's I met on a hike has, to be honest, shocked me that Alzheimer's does affect young people with a whole life in front of them and their families. I was fully aware of the pain Alzheimer's and Dementia can cause in the elderly being in my own family. Fundraising is also driven by the tremendous power of the love and passion inside my heart for the likes of Lilly and their families
