“I grew up in a little town called Maltby, around 20 miles east of Sheffield. My playground was originally the Peak District, however I always knew that I would one day end up in the Lake District. The incredible natural beauty that the Lake District has retained is breath-taking. I planned my education to take me to Cumbria University, where I studied Adventure Media. This involved creating films in extreme environments and in a variety of extreme sports.
After university, I decided to make the Lake District my permanent home and in April 2017, Penrith Mountain Rescue became a big part of my life this is when I joined as a non-operational team member. This means I am heavily involved with fundraising, organising events for the Team and contributing content on the Team’s website and social media pages. And when needed on training exercises, I become a “body” hidden in the fells for the Team to practice search exercises and casualty care.
