No Limits as Group to Climb Heights of Everest to Raise Money for Equipment

 

The No Limits Outdoor Pursuit Club, Conwy’s ground breaking Outdoor Pursuit Club for people with Disabilities, is undertaking a sponsored climb to raise money for much needed specialist equipment and to raise money for the club to continue it’s activities.

Club members aim to climb the height of Everest, over 29,000ft, by continuously , in relay, climbing the indoor climbing wall at Llandudno Junction Leisure Centre.

The club need to purchase items such as helmets and special harness’s for members with higher levels of disability and also need funds to be able to hire the specialist facilities and instructors needed to hold events.

Conwy’s Disability Sport Wales Development Officer Ian Martin said

"The event will be very hard work for those involved, it’s a big challenge.  But it is typical of the club to attempt a challenge like this in order to raise money and I urge everybody to support the club by donating or by supporting the participants on the day if they get chance"

There will also be the opportunity for children to scale the wall too with assistance from the clubs instructors.
