Oh the wonders of Twitter! Back in June, local Tweeter and Red Recruitment friend @Smirnie71 happened to tweet that she is involved in a climb up Ben Nevis in order to raise money and awareness for the charity DeafBlind Scotland. One of the climbers, inspirational 70-year-old Michael Andersen, is deaf and blind himself, and so the team is not only asking for sponsorship for the charity but also sponsorship for any special kit that they would need for the ascent.
The charity and the climb both sounded so fantastic that Red Recruitment directors Rachael (aka @RedRecruitment) and Meg (aka @MegatRed) decided that Red had to get involved. The first move was that we bought high-visibility rucksack covers for the climbers, so that other teams on their way up Ben Nevis would see what this particular challenge is about. But that didn’t quite seem enough – Meg was so inspired by the challenge that Michael has set that she offered to join the team on the climb! So, this Thursday July 21st, Meg Jones will be hiking her way up Ben Nevis to raise money for a really great charity. We are SO proud of her (aww!) and wish everyone who is on their way to Ben Nevis right now the very best of luck.
