Intrepid Adventurers Take on Journey to Nevis for Charity

A group of five intrepid adventurers are well on their way as they prepare to ‘Journey to Nevis’.

Five local businessmen, who are members of local business networking group BNI, have teamed up to take on the gruelling challenge in aid of local charity Charlie House. 


Charlie House, whose headquarters are in Albyn Place, supports babies, children and young people with complex disabilities and life-limiting conditions in the North-east of Scotland.

The ‘Journey to Nevis’ team consists of Brian Kerr, Andy Proctor, Davie Grieve, Gerry Robertson, Ron McGregor, Colin Chapman (mountain guide) and of course charity mascot Charlie Dog. The challenge will see the team cover 5 trips and a total of ten Munros, culminating in an ascent of Ben Nevis on September 15th, 2018. The trips include:

Trip 1 - Mayar & Driesh (2 Munros)

Trip 2 - Mount Keen (1 Munro)

Trip 3 - Glen Shee (4 Munros)

Trip 4 - Cairn Gorm & Ben Macdui (2 Munros) – The team will conquer Ben MacDui, the 2nd highest mountain in Britain

Trip 5 - Ben Nevis (1 Munro) - The team will attempt to conquer the highest mountain in Britain, which will be the final ascent of the challenge

Susan Crighton, Director of fundraising for Charlie House, says, “We wish our team of adventurers the very best of luck with this fantastic challenge. I know a lot of commitment has gone into this in terms of time, promotion of their challenge and last but not least the training and challenge itself! The money the team raise will assist us in continuing to offer support services for babies, children and young people with complex disabilities and life-limiting conditions in the North-east of Scotland.’ 

Brian Kerr, of the Journey to Nevis team and Senior Contracts Manager at R.Davidson(Banchory)Ltd, says, “We are about a third of the way through our challenge and it has certainly been tough to date. The camaraderie and fun we have had along the way so far has made it all worthwhile, and with knowing we are raising vital funds for such a fantastic local charity. We look forward to the final trip of the challenge and conquering Ben Nevis.”
