We are all deeply saddened to let you know that our dear friend Richard Guy passed away on Monday morning. He was 103 years young.

We will all miss his enthusiasm, his inspiring words and amazing strength for climbing stairs! He knew so many of you who took part in our climbs and we were all inspired by him and his undying love for Louise. He and his team had been busy planning an Adventure for this year and we hope that it will continue in his honour.

Announcements about a memorial are expected in the coming days. Over the years we have saved a number of quotes that were Richard’s and he often said he was one of the luckiest men; not only because of his wonderful wife but because he got to do what he liked. And so a parting word from Richard seems fitting:

Do what you like, I think that is the important thing.
