We offer our sincere thanks to George Batchelor and Greg Labonte, who successfully hiked Ben Nevis on Saturday 27 May 2017 and raised over £350 in support of the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.
Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles stands at 1,345 metres above sea level, which presents a serious challenge to the most seasoned of hikers. The unpredictable weather proved a challenge for our intrepid pair who safely negotiated periods of heavy rain and high winds to make their way to the summit.
The guys were part of a wider group of friends who worked together with David at the Halfway House, Dunfermline. The group enjoyed many ‘lively’ evenings at George’s House, and many infamous shenanigans which took place now form the basis of so many wonderful memories.
“The lives Dave touched after his tragic death has brought so much hope to others who need it. His legacy has spread far beyond what I am sure he thought possible. David we all know was quite a character, but I just miss my friend who I will never forget.”
David’s brother Gary, who founded The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund last year, was also part of this group of friends, who said:
“I look back fondly on so many memorable evenings spent with the guys at George’s house watching films and playing video games as well as host of ‘other’ activities. I think what they guys have accomplished is a fantastic tribute to David’s memory and I am grateful for the funds that they have raised in support of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.”
