Event details

BEN NEVIS MEMORIAL WALK

On 4th August Ian Austin MP & Cllr. Steve Waltho will lead a group of 20+ people from all walks of life to the summit of Ben Nevis to commemorate the life and works of Dudley's legendary peace campaigner, Bert Bissell.  He climbed "The Ben" an incredible 107 times with young people from Dudley and Fort William, built a peace cairn on its summit after World War II.  He also forged strong civic links with Fort William and Dudley and he is buried in Glen Nevis.  This will be the 4th commemorative walk. Dudley's current Mayor, Cllr. Dave Tyler, is part of the group and sponsorship raised will go towards his 3 wonderful charities, Dudley MIND, Dudley Alzheimer's Society and YMCA (Dudley). Last year's climb was completed in horrendous weather conditions but the cause was always greater than anyone's personal discomfort! Wish the team well and please donate - any donation will be greatly received.  Thank you.

I knew Bert when I was at Dudley Grammar School in the early 50's. He would shout my name from the top of the bank on the playing fields even when I was batting Hello Brian in his Somerset drawl. You could not meet a better person.
