Climb the UK’s high­est moun­tain

Paisley Daily Express - - New Retail Park Moves A Step Closer -

Look out your walk­ing boots for Pais­ley’s Ac­cord Hospice Ben Ne­vis Trek.

The fa­mous moun­tain is the high­est point in the UK, stand­ing at a height of 1,343m (roughly 4,000ft).

Fort Wil­liam, on the south­ern edge of the Great Glen and lo­cated on a sea loch, will be the base for the ad­ven­ture week­end in June next year.

Ac­cord says this is a long, ar­du­ous uphill trek which will pro­vide peo­ple with a won­der­ful sense of achieve­ment when they re­flect on what they have done.

The trip will be led by ex­pe­ri­enced Dis­cover Ad­ven­ture lead­ers and sup­port crew.

The lead­ers are se­lected for their knowl­edge , ex­pe­ri­ence, sense of hu­mour and abil­ity to safely and ef­fec­tively deal with any sit­u­a­tion that arises. They are also trained in first aid.

All food, trans­fers and ho­tel ac­com­mo­da­tion are in­cluded in the pack­age.

A fee of £99 will be due on book­ing, then each par­tic­i­pant is be­ing asked to raise a min­i­mum spon­sor­ship of £550.

The event will run from June 7 to 9, 2019. Phone 0141 581 2000 or email fundrais­ing@ac­cord.org.uk
