We are holding a unique fundraising challenge on the 12th-14th May. Join us on a historical walk to the summit of Britain’s highest mountain to follow in the footsteps of famed meteorological pioneer, Clement Wragge. 2017 marks 136 years since Clement Lindley Wragge first climbed Ben Nevis as a result of the Meteorological Society's plans to establish a weather station at the mountain’s summit. As part of his data collection duties, he would climb the mountain daily for two years! Wragge would go onto to cement himself as a visionary in the meteorological field and also started the tradition of naming hurricanes – although this caused great controversy when it was discovered he was naming them after politicians he didn’t like!

Due to its location near to the west coast of Scotland and its exposure to Atlantic storms, Ben Nevis maintains its mercurial nature partnered with natural beauty, making it the perfect setting for a fundraising challenge. 

As part of International Ataxia Awareness month we are encouraging you to take this challenge in aid of people with ataxia, many of whom are unable to carry out such a feat.
