Over the past few weeks I’ve been doing some guiding and instructing on the Discovery quest veterans project. This Charity project works with ex forces personnel from the Norfolk area, who are suffering from various physical and mental issues due to their time in service. The idea is to take them out into the mountains of the UK in an enviroment which will help with their recuperation and recovery. The program runs over 9 months and follows the “Mountain Leader” syllabus with a chance to gain a very useful qualification at the end of the program. So far we have had one trip to the Lakes and another last weekend to Wales. And although the autumn weather has at times lived up to its wet reputation, all of the participants seem to enjoy the program.
