Introducing Meningitis Now Safety Team member Huw Thomas

Day job - Commercial Property Consultant

Describes your favourite part of being a safety team member - I enjoy meeting some inspiring people who are often doing the Challenge after personal tragedy, and helping them participate in, and hopefully complete, the Challenge.

Dislikes it when - I have to drive the support vehicle back from Fort William on Sunday and can't stay in the bar as long as I'd like to on the Saturday night!

Likes it when - all goes to plan, with no injuries; bad weather or roadworks causing a delay on the route.

What advice would you give to someone training for a trek?  - Follow all the advice and information provided by Meningitis Now and don't under estimate the Challenge. 

Our UK treks and challenges couldn’t go ahead without our invaluable safety team and qualified mountain leaders. Each and every one of them retain expert knowledge, understanding and a passion for outdoor pursuits and the mountains we climb. They are on hand to ensure the wellbeing of our participants, navigating them through each trek safely and providing words of encouragement to help everyone complete their challenge.
