Riders Down- Mountain Rescue Fundraiser, please help.
All the details are in this thread, and a proper tribute thread will follow but I am not the person to write it.
I wasn’t going to post this thread until I’d spoken to hungrymonkey but it’s half three in the morning and the full weight of what has gone on has just hit me and it appears my way of grieving is to try and “do” stuff.
A number of members of this forum have lost a few people very dear to them this weekend and I think we’ve decided some good has to come out of this. As it happens four of us are entered as two pairs for the Puffer this weekend and would absolutely love to smash the bollocks of it for Glencoe Mountain Rescue. I only know Chris of the victims but he certainly would have done the same thing.
Chris’s friends have been outstanding and this has already torn through facebook. We’ve already raised nearly £850 in 6 hours. The generosity of everyone has been staggering.
If you can spare anything at all, please donate to the cause here-

I dunno if goldfish is on this forum or not but she has been the subject of Adventure Show coverage before teamed up with Jojo. She’s doing support for me and Luke and any other waif and stray that needs it as that’s what she’s like! She going to mention it to the Adventure Show crew so hopefully we can get a bit more publicity and bust the 10k. That would be awesome. People’s generosity is amazing. I have spent a lot of today with a big lump in my throat.Posted 5 years ago
