Help the Climbing Club to continue providing remarkable outdoor rock climbing trips !

A short summary of your project

The University of Essex climbing club is raising money for our final trip of the year to Turkey! 

Help us funding it to provide an affordable trip for our members, our summer trip will be to Antalya in Turkey, a fabulous place for climbing and expanding people's experience. 

Who are you?

We’re the University of Essex Climbing Club (UECC), a fun and international team. Our aim is to create a safe, fun environment for both beginner and experienced climbers. This includes weekly sessions at the Sports Centre wall, day trips to indoor and outdoor walls, and longer trips away to various places in the UK and Europe to climb, hike, socialise and generally enjoy a great sport together! 

Your story

Climbing is a beautiful sport, qualified as an 'individual sport' it is so much more than that! Each sessions and trips we are all sharing a passion, our mindset: having fun, enjoy nature and landscapes while respecting the environment.

From beginners to competent, we are all helping each other. Our outdoor climbing trips allow our members to bond, and develop tight friendships as well as welcome new members into our Climbing Family. It also enables people who couldn't afford that kind of trip to enjoy that moments thanks to you and the university! Indeed climbing gear is really costly and isn't affordable for all.

Where will the money go?

The entire money will be used to pay the accommodation in Turkey, we will stay at the Bayram treehouse which will provide also food.

All money donated will be used for the accommodation during the trip, so it can be accessible to all our members : 

- 7 days of accommodation at the Bayram tree house is £60

We are aiming to have 20 members during this trip. To fully pay the accommodation we would ideally raise £1200. However, our minimun needed is £800, which will enable us to pay £40 for each member and they will only have to pay £20.
