Climbers Like Me
To mark our 5th year, we are launching "Climbers like Me" - an exciting new project celebrating and championing all aspects of our wonderful community.
Studies have shown that we are most inspired by people we can relate to - be that gender, age, ethnicity, ability or experience. Role modelling and representation is a powerful tool for change. We believe if we can see it, we can be it. Climbers Like Me aims to shine a light on the diverse faces and voices within our community through a photo series:
Alongside this, we want to raise money for four incredible organisations by selling a limited-edition mug and t-shirt These organisations are Black Girls Hike Retreats, Moors for the Future, Young Women's Housing Project and The Climbers Pledge. All profits will be donated to initiatives they are running. The work of each of these is centred around our core values - mental wellbeing, sustainability and accessibility. You can read more on each below.
