DIARY: Francis climbed every mountain in 24 hours

Here’s Francis Goodwin, the joint managing director of Maiden Outdoor, on top of Ben Nevis. Some might wonder why he went there. Well, it’s because he just had to rise to the challenge of climbing it, together with Scafell Pike and Snowdon - the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales, respectively - in 24 hours for the Reading Rotary Club.

Here’s Francis Goodwin, the joint managing director of Maiden Outdoor,

on top of Ben Nevis. Some might wonder why he went there. Well, it’s

because he just had to rise to the challenge of climbing it, together

with Scafell Pike and Snowdon - the highest mountains in Scotland,

England and Wales, respectively - in 24 hours for the Reading Rotary

Club.



He and several others managed the climbs in 23 hours 49 minutes and

raised pounds 12,000 for charity.



Rumours that the expedition was a thinly veiled drive to expand Maiden’s

sheetage have been vehemently denied.



‘There’s not a word of truth in the talk that I erected a Maiden site on

all three peaks,’ the entrepreneurial Goodwin insists, although he does

not deny that the idea had crossed his mind.
