Taste For Adventure has come a long way over the years. Our founder Brummie and his wife Lynn have transformed so many lives. This is a brief outline of our key achievements to date.
The Taste for Adventure charity was set up in 1991 from ‘Brummie’ and Lynn’s home, its aim was to help improve the personal effectiveness of local young and elderly people, who are disadvantaged or ‘at risk’ in life by reason of abuse, crime, infirmity, rural and social isolation, disablement, poverty or social and economic reasons beyond their control.
This was achieved through sporting and adventurous pursuits such as climbing, canoeing, abseiling, caving, mountain biking and with much informal discussion, we were able to encourage these young people to learn how to work together in self-sufficient teams in an environment very different from their city streets, and see for themselves that there is more to life and more exciting challenges than gathering on street corners and getting into trouble with the police.
