Our first two Jam events have been an amazing success. We have raised over £1500 for local charity projects through the fantastic turnout from our community who came and climbed, pushing their own limits for ‘one more send’ that helped raise these brilliant amounts.
We will do it all again on Friday 29th April with a brand new set of 25 problems for you all to come and climb and raise some more funds for our next local charity.
This time we will be raising funds for The Tree Musketeers. This Hackney based charity are a group of volunteers who plant trees in parks and other green spaces throughout the borough of Hackney. They take care for the Hackney community orchards, grow trees in their Tree Nursery, manage the forest trees of Wick Woodland and provide memorial and sponsored tree plantings.
To find out more information about all the work they have been doing or if you wish to volunteer; please visit treemusketeers.org.uk
Once again we will have a live DJ in the centre, 25 brand new problems (v0-v7) and raffle giveaways for all those that take part. The event will start at 6pm (but you can come in before that to climb and register) and go on till closing time at 1030. We will provide the problems and all you need to do is provide the sends / tops. For every top you manage of the 25 problems we will donate 50p to our chosen charity. The more people who climb and send = the more money we will donate : )
The event really is open to any climber no matter what their grade. The problems will all be in the V0-V7 range with most of the problems being under V5. The event is a time for you to climb with friends, or meet new ones, during a fun sociable evening with good tunes and fresh new climbs around the centre.
Each climber will pay £3 to register for the event (all this is donated to the charity too) and normal entry fee applies to enter the centre. We will track sends through the Griptonite app again. This is the same app we use as part of our Stronghold Tottenham Hale Spring Comp series so many of you will be used to how to log your tops.
