I have been a tree hugging environmentalist since birth, but apparently now I’m cool (according to my 14 year old son!)
I love hiking, camping, open water swimming, SUP, and generally larking around in the water. I don’t feel that you can truly be an “outdoor person” without being passionate about protecting the natural environment and the creatures in it. This became even more important to me when I had my children, something we now do together.
I have always done mini litter picks and beach cleans. As a family we have supported SAS as member’s for many many years. I have watched SAS evolve from a small charity to one that is at the forefront of environmental change in the UK. My time for watching is over.
As the great parliamentarian Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
