A huge well done to our band of 12 intrepid trekkers, who took on the Iceland Lava trek for SSAFA in August. Together they completed 35 arduous miles in 3 days through some stunning scenery; including the scene of the 2010 Volcano eruptions, mountain peaks where the Northern lights were visible for over an hour and finishing at one of Europe's largest waterfalls. Most importantly they raised over £37,500, enough to pay for 5,555 calls to SSAFA’s helpline ‘Forcesline’ – a superb achievement!
