Ricky's mighty Ben Nevis challenge

Ricky: To scale the mighty Ben Nevis

Kind hearted Cuckoo parent, Ricky Cooper, and his partner, Martina, have set themselves the challenge of going to the summit of Ben Nevis in aid of the Save the Children charity.

The couple will attempt to conquer the iconic mountain in Scotland, the largest in the British Isles, known both to locals and visitors as simply 'the Ben', in April after a strenuous 2 month training programme to prepare themselves.

"I wanted to say a huge thank you to Save the Children who put on a wonderful parenting course at the school which has had a big impact on my family."

"We are taking this challenge very seriously. We will be training hard for the next eight weeks, ensuring we have all the right equipment and we will follow the advice and guidance of the experts to ensure we make it both a successful and safe adventure for us."

The couple aim to get to the summit, which is the collapsed dome of an ancient volcano, and back to their hotel base in 6-9 hours. They will have climbed 1,350 meters and have achieved something that few people do.
