BEN NEVIS ASCENT MAY 16 2009

Bob Cottell from IPP joined up with Foresters for a charity ascent of Ben Nevis on Saturday May 16. Foresters members raised money for a wide range of charities, and Bob was supporting the Careline Appeal.

We set off at around 9 a.m. and reached the summit around 1.30pm, where visibilty was poor and the snow still deep. Everyone made it down safely, meeting up in the Ben Nevis Inn for some 'refreshments' - fantastic day out and well done to everyone who took part.

Many thanks to all those who provided sponsorship, many thanks for Jo who organised the event - in all, over 15 charities were supported on the day.

The pictures show: two shots from the summit from the May 14 when the weather was clear - group shot at the summit, in the cloudy and blustery conditions, on the Saturday - and the final refuge - the Ben Nevis Inn (great place if you are ever there).
