Well as many of you who know me will understand that fitness is my life and really this trek should be a breeze........Who am I kdding!!!!!!!Inspiration for the climb came on a friday night after a few drinks with an old work friend..reality hit in the next day! So I have been on a few climbs but to say I am nervous is an understatement! So I can only try my best.As I have mentioned I am self funding the trip so all donations go direct to the Thames Valley Adventure Playground ( TVAP ).TVAP is an adventure playground based in the village where I live, Taplow, Berkshire. It is open to children and adults with all types of special needs, however, mild or profound, their sibling and parents / carers. It is also very meaningful to me because when my sister was alive, who was mentally handcapped, she often visited the playground enjoying the unique experience which it brings to both adults and children alike.So please dig deep for this wonderful charity xxx
