• Applied to the Alumni Foundation in November 2013
• Awarded £1500
The Mountaineering Club submitted a well written and detailed application to the Alumni Foundation in November 2013. The application outlined a need for new equipment, helmets, guidebooks amongst other things.
The club was awarded £1500 to go towards the purchase of new equipment detailed in the application.
Equipment is the main running expense of the club. The grant has been very beneficial in supplementing the club’s current equipment store. Now the club has a sufficient collection of ice screws and more technical ice axes for winter and alpine activities. The helmets and guidebooks purchased have proved essential in replacing older equipment that no longer met safety requirements and was not serviceable.
