This evening I received the shocking news that Peter Huntley, a man due to go on the North Pole Trek in 6 weeks, sadly fell to his death on Sunday while out training on the snow-covered hills of the Lake District.
Peter was 54, a 6ft+ guy who was quiet, had a gentle nature and always an encouraging word. Such sad news and my thoughts are with his family.
He will be with us on our Trek, even if only in spirit.
