Graham Higgins is the newest member of the The Ultimate Challenge crew. At 68 he's the also the youngest.
Graham has been married to his wife Gill for 43 years and they have five children, the oldest now 40, the youngest 28.
Graham had an interesting working life in the computer industry, the last 25 years as I.T. Manager for a commodity trading company in London. He travelled extensively to company offices and mining facilities around the world.
Graham retired 8 years ago and has continued to travel as much as possible. He particularly enjoys exploring away from the normal tourist routes and getting as close as possible to the local people and customs, getting to know their way of life.
“It's probably the combination of the travel bug and the fact that we'll be driving routes not easily accessible to the individual that attracted me to The Ultimate Challenge. The charity Heaven Can Wait I'm Busy sums up the way I look at life, and I'm excited to be combining my love of a challenge with being able to give something back to society.”
