Success at the North Pole.
Gary has confirmed he will be competing in the North Pole Marathon in April 2014. Gary said "This definately comes under the heading of "Adventure" and I'm not doing it for charity - far too much pressure!"
Gary led a team of eight, including 68 year old John Harris in a wheelchair, to the top of Kilimanjaro the highest summit in Aftrica. Gary had climbed the mountain on 3 previous occassions.
Parker & Co sponsored the succesful team in conquering the English Channel in 16hrs and 21 minutes on 2nd July. The team was Gary Parker, Kath Lewis, Kara Williams, Dawm Lea and Keith Leslie.
The 3 peaks event took place on 22nd June and was a tremendous day for both the teams that took part and for fund raising for the charity. The weather once again was'nt so good but that just made it more of a challenge for the participants. Everyone seemed to enjoy getting to the end!
