I received a message from Marie Curie re the Ben Nevis mountain climb, apparently there's a problem with my application, which doesn't bode well. Unfortunately they were closed by the time I picked up the message, so I will have to wait until tomorrow, to find out what the problem is. I think I will hang off booking my accommodation, until I speak to them!
PS Why do people leave messages at 5:10 to tell you that they're closing at 5:30, when they've had all day to ring???
