Liberal Arts Lecture: Lynn Robinson

Lynn Robinson The BMC is a membership-led 85,000 member organisation that is the representative body for hill walking, climbing and mountaineering in England and Wales, as well as being the governing body for competition climbing. Its work is vital for maintaining access to the hills and mountains that we love.  I was always pushing for women to be more involved in the more ‘senior’ volunteer roles, so when the volunteer role of President unexpectedly became vacant I thought I’d better put my money where my mouth is and stand. It was a contested election, so I was absolutely thrilled when the votes were counted and I received an over whelming majority of the votes.  I’ve climbed 6000m trekking peaks in Nepal, Alpine Peaks in Europe and last September I climbed El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. I also indoor climb. When I’m on the crag, or hanging off the side of a mountain, or walking on Kinder Scout, or just testing myself indoors…it’s where I ‘recharge my batteries’.  I’m looking forward to sharing my volunteering journey in more detail with Manchester Grammar School.
