Climbing Britain’s Highest Mountain at Night

A bit different from my usual writing posts and short stories but I thought I’d come to my most familiar platform to try and fundraise for something that means a lot to me. August the 9th at 10pm I shall begin my ascent of Ben Nevis in Scotland to reach the summet before sun rise.…
