GetOutside Champion: TwoBlondes
Outdoor leaders Lucy Atkins and Fi Darby are ‘very ordinary women’ but as well as having day jobs, their passion for the outdoors takes them regularly into situations beyond the norm for most women of their age.
For Emily Thompson, being outdoors is an addiction, and she particularly loves mountaineering at any opportunity she gets.
When she's not romping over the mountains or dreaming up the next adventure, Emily works for a charity inspiring positive changes and providing second chances to young people.
Emily also works as a freelance Mountain Leader, working with young people through their Duke of Edinburgh award – training, supervising and assessing their expeditions around the UK, and providing adults with a variety of adventures in the outdoors and teaching navigation.
She is also an active callout member of her local Mountain Rescue Team.
