Podcast Bench Talk: Episode 23: Alan Blake
This nonagenarian has just ‘climbed’ Everest. I interview him on the summit at the end of 67,000 steps taken around his Wyeside steep garden. Inspired by Captain Sir Tom he was determined to raise huge funds for Parkinson’s, Burghill and Rotary. Stories of his Herefordshire life and work at the Cathedral, top tips for tourism in the county and tales of the unexpected. This is a short and sweet interview with an extremely determined man.
Our bench is at the top of his garden steps.
