Legendary Climber Joins Our Relief Effort
A master of kinaesthetics, conscious and unconscious, Johnny is the master of body awareness, movement and balance. He has cemented himself into the climbers hall of fame as one of the most experimental climbers of all time and was the first successful climbing coach, coaching since 1994. Recently Johnny has been concentrating on the fascinating sport of no-handed climbing, which is sure to be an eye opener to all who give it a go.
Lost Earth Adventures are holding an Abseiling fundraiser at Stanage Edge near Hathersage in the Peak District on 14th June to raise money for the relief effort in Nepal. The attempt will be to collectively abseil the height of Kathmandu (1440m) over the course of the day with as many participants as possible. Johnny has kindly agreed to donate his time free of charge to help us out on the day and is inviting people to have a go at no handed climbing before or after your abseil slot.
Goodie Bags will be distributed on the day and there will also be a silent auction for some top climbing equipment.
100% of the donations will go directly towards the relief effort in Nepal, reaching vulnerable and remote mountain villages and providing safe drinking water, food and shelter as well as rebuilding the school in Shirkhabesi. Lost Earth Adventures, our guides and Johnny Dawes will all be donating our time on the day of the fundraising event and any administration costs will be covered by Lost Earth Adventures.
Please visit the Share the Load Foundation page and click the ‘How You Can Help’ tab for the option to donate. Please reference your name when submitting your donation.
The event will take place from 10am to 5pm, the meeting point is Hooks Car Park, Hathersage in Derbyshire. Minimum age for participants is seven, under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult.
Pre-registration is essential by ringing 01904 500094 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
