BREAKING NEWS: TOP OF THE WORLD!!!
We have just heard from the guys that Father & son have done it!
Gary Coutanche, who is the Headteacher at De La Salle Primary School, & who underwent surgery in 2013 to remove a brain tumour, today climbed the highest mountain in the British Isles.
He was joined on the climb today by his 14 year old son William, who was behind the idea of the challenge, completing the challenge two days earlier than expected.
Here is what Gary has just told us:
Hello. Climbed Ben Nevis today. Ledge Route in strong winds and rain. A few exciting moments! Really pleased to have made it to the top. Too cold and wet to wear the tshirts- had to walk through patches of snow on the way up. Yippee!
William and I very proud to have achieved our aim, and in some pretty awful weather.
We are even prouder of them both, we all here at JBTC join in with their celebrations & cant wait to see them safely home.
