Torbay climber shares Everest challenge
A YOUNG woman who climbed Mount Everest will speak to Bay businesses about her adventure next week.
Mollie Hughes from Churston will present at this month's Torbay Development Agency's 2nd Friday breakfast meeting at Cockington Court Craft Centre on November 9.
At the age of 21, Mollie became one of the youngest British climbers to conquer Mount Everest. After 18 months of rigorous training, two months living in the harsh mountain environment and 18 hours climbing in the oxygen-less world above 8,000m – Mollie completed her challenge.
The former Paignton Community College student will explain how you can achieve absolutely anything with the right mix of determination, self-belief and team work.
