Not exactly sunshine mountain
Hats off to my old friend, Rob Wilks, (on the right), from Sheffield, who has just completed the ascent of Ben Nevis in aid of Epilepsy Action and the MND Association. It was, he reports, somewhat tiring; but he hopes to raise over £1500 for the two charities, both of which we have a personal interest in. You can see a photographic record of the climb and also contribute to the funds on http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RobWilks. You can see that views from the top proved a bit disappointing, but he reports that they were a pleasant band of 14, climbing cloud-capped mountain. Personally, I'm full of admiration for him as he has severe epilepsy himself. Thanks and congratulations, Rob, for proving once again that "disability" is in the eye of the beholder.
