We are the trowbridge troopers, four young guys looking for a challenge! A few of us have had expirience with hiking before with the Ten Tors and hiking with the air cadets but over the last few years havent done a lot of hiking so we thought we needed to set a challenge for ourselves! We have John, the oldest member of the group, who is a fireman in leicester and has very little hiking experience but plenty of stamina and moral boosting 'banter', Alex is a self employed carpenter, he has a lot of drive passion for this and experience of ten tors and im marcus, team leader, iv completed Ten Tors twice, once as the team leader, i have expirience of mountain climbing in both Wales and Scotland and feel confident about getting this team through our training up and down all three mountains! we also have the driver/cook/tea brewer, stuart, he jumped at the chance to help out as long as it didnt involve any hiking!
We are raising money for the Wallace and Gromit Grand Appeal to help save the lives of little children. Alex from our groups partner lost a younger brother so this means a lot to him and his family. The rest of us wanted to do this for a good cause and we all agreed we couldn't think of a better charity!
