Inspirational Talk

I went to the Birnham Art Centre to hear Karen Darke talk about her life and experiences. At the age of 21, Karen was severely injured whilst climbling sea-cliffs on the Aberdeenshire coastline.  She was paralysed from down. Since then she has sea-kayaked, sat-skied across Greenland, biked in the Indian Himalaya, climbed the Old Man of Hoy (which was filmed for BBC SCotland) and the most amazing of all, climbed the unbelievably difficult El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, have a look at the amzing footage on her website

This was a warm, enjoyable night which the packed audience really related to. Karen’s story is inspitational and very moving, it was a pleasure to meet her.
