Story

Tim tragically died over Christmas 2011, after a works night out. He was 28 and had everything to live for. He was a person who made such a lasting impression on everyone he met and was loved by so many.  

Tim loved the great outdoors, his hero being Ray Mears and spent most of his spare time going on long walks with his growing family.  Tim in particular loved the mountains, whether it be climbing up them or skiing down them.  He loved the challenge and had great determination and would never be defeated.  He would often stray from the path and find himself climbing a ravine to challenge him further, very few were mad enough to join him though.

Tim expressed an interest in joining the Glossop Mountain Rescue Team and always admired the volunteer’s hard work and dedication in helping walkers.

After the success of last years walk and in raising over £3000 for Glossop Mountain Rescue Team we are continuing to remember Tim's legacy by walking from Old Glossop to the top of Bleaklow which is roughly a 10 mile hike crossing a peaty terrain which will prove a tough challenge to most. 

We hope the success of last year continues and would like to thank everyone in advance for participating and working hard to raise funds again for such a heroic cause!
