Good luck to Wendy Gourley, Capital Analyst, Finance Department who is taking on a huge challenge next month as part of The Beyond Recovery Project.  Wendy was joined by colleagues in the Western Trust earlier this month to climb Mount Errigal, Co Donegal to support her in her training to climb Mount Toubkal (4167 metres) North Africa’s highest mountain in June this year.

Julie Duffy, Project Assistant, Strategic Capital Development explained:

“The Beyond Recovery Project was created by brain tumour survivor, Sara Crosland. The Beyond Recovery Project is about bringing together others on the same or similar journey, creating a ‘safe’ space and sense of community, where survivors can share experiences and discover how to push beyond the physical and psychological barriers they face together.

“Well done Wendy and we wish you every success in your challenge to climb Mount Toubkal!”
