Last week Summit Up hosted its first Business Breakfast. Seeing so many people and businesses from the Oldham Community join us was great. Aklakur Rahman kindly spoke at the event which I can safely say blew everyone away. Akke is the first British Muslim to have summited Mt. Everest and his video and speech inspired everyone.
Elliot has started climbing sessions with Sarah, at Summit Up, which has been fantastic! Climbing has such a positive impact on him. It is so good for his physical fitness and each time he climbs, we see him really having to work hard and use his problem-solving skills. Most important of all, he clearly really enjoys it!
I needed a sport that gave me the sense of adventure I was missing in my life....If I had an addiction, it would be climbing. I just can’t imagine living without it.
For anyone thinking of starting climbing, Tim's advice is simple, "It's less about your arms than you think. If you can climb a flight of stairs, then you are able to climb a rock climb."
