During May, HOPE’s CEO Alan (and his friends) undertook the West Highland Way, 92 miles from Glasgow to Fort William, and adding Ben Lomond & Ben Nevis …. He did this in order to raise money for HOPE and to help homeless people across north Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.
Alan managed to raise £575 for HOPE, as well as £92.50 in gift-aid. More contributions are expected shortly.
Alan has said “I do like walking and enjoying the health benefits of getting out into the countryside, it’s how I relax. However, when I began to plan for the West Highland Way, I hadn’t realised that all that Scottish scenery can come with its share of rain, to keep the pleasant land green…… So, having a week of endless glorious sunshine to walk in was entirely unexpected, but fantastic.
The days were long, averaging 20 miles a day, but most enjoyable. Getting a rather large blister on day one was not in the plan either, but was managed with plasters and cream. For anyone who likes to walk, I would encourage one of Britain’s long-distance paths. The West Highland Way is one of the oldest and prettiest. Give it a go, I guarantee you will enjoy it, meet incredibly interesting people and have a brilliant experience.
We finalised the trip with a climb of Ben Nevis, the country’s largest mountain. Again, we hadn’t planned for the tropical temperatures, very different from a previous failed attempt, when a “white out” turned us around when almost there. But, after 8 hours of tough going we were back in Fort William for a well-earned ice cream (which had to be hurried to prevent it melting). I would like to thank everyone who has sponsored me, their support meant I could not consider stopping, even when my feet felt on fire.”
