As a company, we have always been great supporters of Climbing Out – a Shropshire charity running outdoor activity programmes aimed at rebuilding confidence and self-esteem in people who’ve been through a life-changing injury, illness or trauma.
And now it’s time to dust off the old tuxedo … or should we say a three-piece suit and newsboy cap … and support their next fundraising event!
We sponsored founder Kelda Wood’s challenge to row the Atlantic, an incredible feat that raised more than £50,000, and more recently we’ve fitted her out with a brand new office for the charity, created with a bespoke design to fit her needs.
During 2020 the charity, which originally catered for the age range of 16 to 30-year-olds, is pushing forward with a new plan and adding new programmes for those 30 years and over and for those living with more challenging physical limitations.
And we are right behind them!
As part of our support for 2020 we will be attending the Climbing Out Ball and Awards Ceremony to be held in May.
The ball will have a Peaky Blinders theme and see businesses and supporters from across Shropshire and beyond come together for a night of cocktails, roulette wheels and showdown shooting!
And we would like to encourage businesses across Shropshire to come and join us and help fundraise for Climbing Out – allowing more and more people to be able to access their programmes.
Outdoor programmes for all
The current programmes offer a wide range of activities including climbing, gorge scrambling, kayaking, hill walking, abseiling and raft building – and all the activities are bespoke to meet the needs and capabilities of individual participants.
The ball will see the 2020 Climbing Out Awards and getting to see the brave and wonderful people that feature in those is always a privilege.
Peaky Blinders Fundraising Ball and Awards
And the night, which includes a three-course meal, live band and an auction, promises to be extremely entertaining for all involved….
As the Peaky Blinders say:
“Be afraid of the
calmest person in the room.”
We will see you there!
Dress code: Peaky Blinders attire!
Tickets: £38/person, or £350 for a table of 10.
