In reply to Martyn Maltby: A free plug 'cause I think he deserves it! I saw his lecture in Ambleside last night and it was great! Definitely not your conventional lecture (in a great way), very funny and we all left in a great mood. Highly recommended!
Hey I was there too! He was hilarious. "Entertaining more than inspirational" as everything looked despirate and opposed to Mick Fowler in Aberdeen last week who was "Inspirational more than entertaining"
Andy's manic show had us all in stitches, even when the projector bulb blew and he entertained us for over half an hour while another projector was sent for. Go and see him as soon as you can, wherever he appears. What impressed me was that it would be equally hilarious (and enlightening) to non-climbers. He could do this show on telly on Saturday night and get rave reviews. I can't think of any other climbing lecture(r)s that could do that.
Many of those there, being outdoor types, must have seen the obvious logic and value of the charity, and thanks to Andy's support, we have had a lot of enquiries since the show, from those wanting to help us raise funds, and also from those who know someone (we all must know someone) who could use some funds to fulfil that 'last great adventure'.
