Camping Equipment for Climbing Club

A project by: Karen Fuggle



from 3 donors

This project received donations on Wed 23 Jan 2019
We would like to raise money to get better camping equipment to benefit the members in our club.

A short summary of our project

We are raising money to buy better camping equipment for the club. This will mean that we are able to offer a more comfortable experience for our members who do not own their own equipment. This will especially encourage our newest members to come on trips with us and get more outdoor experience. 

Who are WE?

We are the University of Essex Climbing club. Our goal is to try and make trips as cheap for our members so they are able to take part in all these amazing adventures with us and not have to burden themselves with a lot of the cost. 

our story

The experiences that these trips provide are very valuable. There is no feeling comparable to sending your first outdoor climb. Without these trips, members would not be able to have the full experience of climbing. Camping equipment will go towards making sure the trip is cost effective for all our members buying a lot of equipment for themselves or paying to stay in a B&B or motel for the duration of the trip is very costly.

Where will the money go?

  • Sleeping Bags cost £38 per bag x6
  • Sleeping mats cost £10 a mat x6
  • Any extra money will go towards subsiding the cost of fuel for trips to make them cheaper for members.
