I met Jack once in the Moorings Hotel in 2016 day before he went in the wilderness and I wish I knew what an amazing and kind fundraiser Jack is!
He managed to climb 282 Scottish mountains all higher than 3000ft in just four months helped to raise more then £25,000 for the Household Cavalry Foundation and Parkinson’s UK.
– and enjoyed it so much that he’s now trying to survive in a forest on the Ardnamurchan Estate for a year, cut off from the world and using only natural resources. This challenge would help boost the local economy and planning officials recommended approval. It will bring some jobs and hopefully a tourism boots to a remote and economically fragile are of Lochaber/ Highland/Scotland.
He is an inspiration to me and I wish the best for him and his family.
