Heart-stop­ping climb for char­ity

The Oban Times - - Review -

AN ARDCHATTAN woman and 15 of her friends em­barked on a heart-stop­ping 500-me­tre climb on Au­gust 7, rais­ing £4,220 for the per­se­cuted Yazidi refugees in the Mid­dle East.

Fiona Ben­nett and friends climbed the Via Fer­rata, a moun­tain route equipped with fixed points, at Ver­ti­cal De­scents in Kin­lochleven.

Mother of two Fiona, a for­mer psy­chi­atric nurse, said: ‘It was an in­cred­i­ble ex­pe­ri­ence and the staff were ex­cel­lent.’
