This podcast takes you to one of the most remote parts of the UK, an area renowned as the last wilderness of Britain. Even the most touristic areas take some effort to get to. Welcome to the Scottish highlands.
Joe Stevenson tells us about a charity hike he did a couple of years ago. Charity events are a great way of becoming a little bit more adventurous. The challenges are organised for you, the group leaders have plenty of experience with people of all fitness and of course, you can raise some money for a good cause at the same time.
The hike that Joe decided to do was the Ben Nevis Challenge for Epilepsy Action. Joe hadn’t climbed a mountain before his trip to Scotland, but he decided to take on the highest peak in the UK.
Epilepsy Action is a charity that provides support and expert advice, raises awareness and advocates for people with epilepsy. You can speak to them about all elements of living with epilepsy or if you are interested in taking on a challenge for Epilepsy Action.
