Terry has inspired me to undertake projects I would never have done, (due to a breast lump) like completing the Inca Trail in Peru. Terry trained with me and worked on my diet Terry in his youth was one of the worlds top mountaineers, at 18 years old he was one of the first people to get the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. Terry suffered from extreme asthma ever since he was a small child but he overcame this condition to compete in running in the All England School Championship and lots more. Terry gave up his personal climbing projects and starting to work in Edinburgh with disaffected young people including offenders. He taught kayaking to some young people who eventually kayaked for the British Team. Terry started the Tuesday Group in Edinburgh which was aimed at educating young people in the outdoors and giving opportunities to children whose family were on limited incomes. Terry volunteered for the Mountain Rescue based in Keswick and was involved in a number of search and rescue operations. Terry's friend became ill with cancer, Terry spent all his time with him, working on his recovery, until he was fit and able to lead a normal life again. Terry in now a valued member of the community and volunteer on a number of projects. He has maintained his own physical fitness and regularly cycles, runs, sails and swims, bearing the torch would be no difficulty for him! This would be a chance in a lifetime for him as he is a huge fan of the Olympics.
