To ensure Climb Hitchin can continue to run after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted

Additional funds will be used to offer discounted sessions for members who have suffered financially due to COVID-19 and would benefit from a reduced rate to enable them to still climb.  They will also be put towards our expansion plans to extend the climbing wall space.

Due to COVID-19, Climb Hitchin is now in a vulnerable position. With the cancellation of sessions for the foreseeable future and our bank balance depleting we are reaching out for some support to try and ensure we can weather this storm no matter how long it lasts.  Our financial situation was not helped by the fact that our annual insurance cover was paid just before lock down (£780).

We know that everyone is going through a tough time right now and money for many people is really tight with furloughing and job losses but if you can spare a few pounds to support the future of Climb Hitchin it would be so greatly appreciated.  We would hate to see all our efforts to bring climbing to the people of North Herts go to waste especially when we were planning expansion and eventually the offer of family sessions.

If we could raise £500 that would be enough to keep us afloat.  If after this is over we find that we have some spare cash we plan to offer discounted sessions for anyone who has suffered financial difficulties to to COVID-19.  We want to be an inclusive climbing club for everyone and if we would hate affordability of sessions to be a barrier.  

Thank you all so much for any support you can give us.  

Stay safe and we really hope we get to see you all later this year.
