Matthew's mum contacted us after Ricky spoke at Muiredge Primary school in South Lanarkshire:

"I just wanted to send you a message of thanks. We’ve never met, but you recently visited my 7 year old sons school to talk about your adventures.

He’s now writing a book called “Matthew and Grandpa go camping” which involves a trip to the top of Everest, via Goat Fell, Ben Nevis and K2.

My dad is a keen hill walker from Arran, and climbed most of the Scottish hills but sadly currently in hospital.

All week my son Matthew has been chatting to him planning their Everest camping adventure and it’s given my dad so much joy.

I just wanted to say thank you - your adventures live on in possibly your youngest and eldest fans....”
