Climb Completed - £515 Raised!
Katie's Auntie Penny completed her climb to the top of Ben Nevis in aid of Little Havens
She finished by lunchtime having set off at dawn. Penny talks of the climb, of peanut butter sandwiches and of being flooded....
Penny has spoken about her day and she said "A big rainbow appeared at the top of Nevis (see photo left) while our peanut butter sandwiches were being munched. Much warms and fuzziness."
"It was a great day...thigh-burning in places but great. Couldn't have asked for better weather. All days before and after were torrential rain by the bucketload. I got flooded out of my tent and came home early to dry everything off! Next time I'll hire a camper van."

Toby, Katie's half brother, overhead his Mum talking about the event and thought she said Penny was climbing "Everest" - maybe next year!
