Jade's Trek Ben Nevis! 10 September 2016

During September 2016 Jade Ashton, who was born on the Marsh, now living in Lydd and working for the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway,Jade Ashton will be trekking the scale of Ben Nevis to raise fund for Help for Heroes. 
At a 4359ft ascent this is certainly a challenge.

For anyone who has visited Ben Nevis before they will know one of the biggest risks is the sudden change of inclement weather from fog to rain to snow. Maximum Adventure will be providing the guide for the trek that will completed within a day.

Help For Heroes give practical and direct support to the sick and injured service men and women whom work tirelessly for our country. As an umbrella of hope Help For Heroes provides grants for many other charities as well as funding their own recovery centres helping to rebuild lives and careers. see more below

For those who know the Marsh you will know it is not famed for its hills and steep ascents but Jade is exploring the Marsh as a base to raise her basic fitness levels with bicycles rides along the sea wall to Burmarsh, along the cycle path to Rye and everywhere in between before venturing out to the hills of   Fairlight and beyond to practice on various terrain.
