Our first Jam event was an amazing success. We raised £1215 for the Hackney Doorway project through the fantastic turnout from our community who came and climbed, pushing their own limits for ‘one more send’ that helped raise that brilliant amount.
We will do it all again on Friday 25th March 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 Sharp End. This Hackney based charity helps supports adults over 50 and older adults to lead an active, connected, and independent lives. The Sharp End focuses on social events to get older residents out of their homes and enjoy activities with new people to alleviate social isolation and loneliness. They are an inclusive and welcoming organisation, recognising that diversity and inclusion stimulate creativity, innovation and success for their organisation, their wonderful members and superb tutors and facilitators.
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 1045. 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.
