Story

Alan has been climbing the bank of his steep riverside garden to complete the same amount of steps as it would take to climb the mountains that he loves. Alan has been supporting and caring for his wife, Val, who has had Parkinson’s for over two decades. He has also been a member of the City of Hereford Rotary Club for more than 50 years and a keen fundraiser.

To complete this challenge Alan will climb the 120 circular steps around his garden on a daily basis. Since October 2020 Alan has climbed the Blorenge, the Sugar Loaf, the Black Mountains, the Brecon Beacons, Cadar Idris, Snowdon, Scafell Pike , Ben Nevis, Ben Mcdui , The Eiger, The Matterhorn, Mt Blanc and Mt Cook and Cable Mountain in Tasmania. Alan has now completed the 15 miles from his initial challenge, climbed over 80,000 steps which is the equivalent of Everest, and has now decided to continue until he reaches 96,000 steps to celebrate the Queens next birthday!

      I have been keeping my beady eye on you since you started and canoed passed your house the other day and saw you walking up the steps, steeper than I thought so good on you.
