Margaret's Bagging Mariylns
We are delighted to confirm that Margaret Hancox, who climbed 7 Marilyns (hills with at least 500 feet of ascent on all sides) for her 70th birthday, raised £1,765 for HOST. Congratulations Margaret, and thank you!
"I celebrated my 70th birthday this year and wanted to mark my 7th decade by climbing 7 Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000feet). However, health issues have forced me to abandon this challenge. My alternative challenge is to climb 7 Marilyns (hills with at least 500 feet of ascent on all sides). An advantage of this change of direction is that Marilyns are nearer to my home than Munros – but there are none in Oxfordshire where I live!"
Margaret has been a strong supporter of HOST for over 25 years, acting as a host and Trustee.
