/ June 2024

Firstly, a huge thanks to everyone who supported Lauren and Suzi to reach the summit of Ben Nevis on 1st June. They ‘smashed’ their own targets and have raised well over £2,000, which is absolutely fantastic.

Secondly, over to Lauren for her moving account of this very eventful and emotional day:

"I set out to climb Nevis on 1st June with a group of people aged 15 – 83! All with our own ailments and one of my own team members Suzi Gibson (QIRM) who joined us for the journey.
