Wellington and His Girl

My very determined fellah has just returned from a humongous hiking challenge.  He has just climbed the highest mountains in England (Scafell Pike), Scotland (Ben Nevis) and Wales (Mount Snowdon) all one after another.  

It's an amazing achievement, especially for a self confessed "larger gentleman".  After eighteen months of training he has now lost so much weight that the term is no longer applicable.  I'm immensely proud of my man!

The team did amazingly well and have so far raised over £2,500 for Derian House Children's Hospice.  Their  exploits were featured in the Lancashire Telegraph.
