MRT/Sir Bonington Weekend

posted by Darren Jane on 2010-06-09

The Club is having a fun-packed weekend this week meeting Keswick Mountain Rescue Team, camping and going for a walk with none other than Sir Chris Bonington! On Saturday we've been invited for a tour around Keswick Mountain Rescue Team's headquarters. MRTs receive no government funding but we often try to raise money for our local team. This is a great chance to meet them and see how they put those donations to fantastic life-saving use. After the tour we'll be setting up camp at Hollows Farm campsite before an afternoon hill-walking. On Sunday we'll be travelling to Howgills where we will meet Sir Chris Bonington, legendary mountaineer who has scaled Everest, and Chancellor to our University! There's still chance to get involved! Pop down to Faraday Foyer between 1-2PM by Friday with your yellow membership card and £15 to sign-up.
