Ben Nevis mountain challenge
Raising money for Marie Curie Cancer Care
The Challenge
Hello, we are a group of ladies from Somerset who have chosen to climb a mountain!! A long time ago over a lasagne two of us came up with a crazy idea to climb Nevis
The Charity
Marie Curie Cancer Care provides high quality nursing, totally free, to give people with terminal cancer and other illnesses the choice of dying at home, supported by their families. It runs nine Marie Curie Hospices across the UK offering free specialist care for patients and support for families. The charity conducts palliative care research to find better ways of caring for terminally ill people and also funds scientists who investigate the causes and treatments of cancer
The Training
We are training about an hour a day and doing coastal path walks at the weekend. We have trained in the freezing cold during winter and the heat of the summer but somehow managed to dodge the rain looking forward to trying out our wet weather gear!!
