Meredith Adams

Meredith Adams

Meredith created MAD Challenges as a way to share her love of the outdoors and experience Scotland in a new way. She gets involved with all things MAD Challenges, from blog writing and partnerships, to event operations and portaloo hire!


Meredith is mad about: “adventures to the mountains and climbing Munros.”


Dave Bell

Dave created MAD Challenges with Meredith because nothing like it existed and he thought it should. Formerly a climate scientist and outdoor instructor, you could say Dave is pretty keen on green. He likes to get excited about what MAD Challenges could become.


Dave is mad about: “outdoor kit, even though he clearly can’t fit anymore in his ‘cosy’ flat…”

Yasmin Luqman

Yasmin helps with content creation and social media strategy and is excited by the prospect of helping Scotland go greener. She is fascinated by all types of sustainability and low-impact living and can often be found perusing Edinburgh’s vintage clothing shops.

Yasmin is mad about: ‘keeping my houseplants alive and vegan sausage rolls.


Immy Harris

Immy is the treasurer of MAD Challenges, but enjoys other things than just the numbers. One of her favourite things is a hiking weekend, being outside and with pals. Don’t mention the weather.


Immy is mad about: “anything sport-related (she even loves cricket) and a flat white.”

David Evans

David helps with the digital side of MAD Challenges by managing the website, working on our digital strategy and creating the campaigns we run using Do Nation.

David is MAD about: “Kayaking down waterfalls in the highlands, but only when can be persuaded it’ll be warm enough!”
