On the evening of Friday 5 July whilst you are stepping into your pj’s I will be taking part in The Ben Nevis Midnight Challenge for the Alzheimer’s Society and trekking through the night to the summit of Ben Nevis in Scotland.
Why? In memory of Peter Roy Nicholson, my father .... builder, businessman, wise owl, hero, best mate, confidante, I was truly blessed to have had him as my Dad. Having enjoyed the best of health during his life, he was struck down with Alzheimer’s. I watched someone I love slip away with this devastatingly cruel illness knowing there was no cure. Anyone’s family who has been touched by Alzheimer’s knows only too well that the torture your loved one suffers and the effect it has on the family as they witness this horrendous illness is heartbreaking.
Taking part in The Ben Nevis Challenge will help raise funds towards vital research for a cure of this terrible illness and support for those suffering.
Donations of support will be very much appreciated.
