Key workers throughout this crisis have proved they are the backbone of our society. The lady behind the checkout, the postman who's still delivering your Amazon parcel in the driving rain, the bus driver that is still taking the nurse to work, these are the hero's in this story and there's not a cape in sight. They deserve a holiday. 

I've set this go fund me page to try and help three or more key workers go on amazing mountain adventures here in the Highlands 

As a token of our gratitude -Atlas Mountaineering will will cover the costs of  the guiding and instructors for free!

What I need you all to do is donate some money, pay for part of their hotel, buy them a beer, get them the train fare here.  Let's repay their hard work with some kindness.

I want to donate three trips to this,

A two day winter skills trip in Fort William with two nights in the Alexandra hotel worth £393.00

Ben Nevis via Tower ridge or Ledge route with a night in the Alexandra hotel in Fort William and pizza and a beer in the Black Isle Brewery bar worth £255.00 

Curved ridge or the Aonach Eagach ridge in Glencoe with a night in the kings house hotel including dinner. Worth £255.00

some suggested donations below.

£60 will pay for their hotel for the night 

£20 will cover the equipment rental 

£15 will pay for their evening meal

£5 will buy them a beer after an amazing day on the hill 

£30 will cover their travel to the highlands 

£198 will cover the cost of a qualified and insured mountaineering instructor (I’ve got this bit)

£8 will pay for their packed lunches

£4 will get them a bit of cake at the end of the day.

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £70 million for bright ideas and good causes.
