Fundraising in 2011

20th April 2012

For the year ending at the AGM in March, our fundraising total was an amazing £1,682.15! This was raised through things like taking part in the Bogle and selling doughnuts to hungry hikers! Thanks to all those who took part in our fundraising activities and/or donated money! The money we raise is donated to Mountain Rescue, who we hope we'll never need.

Merchandise collection

14th April 2012

If you ordered any merchandise before Easter, it is ready for you to collect from the Student Activities Office, Monday-Friday, 12:30-13:30!

Annual dinner

11th April 2012

Annual dinner 2012 will be held at the Buckingham Hotel in Buxton on Saturday the 28th of April.

This yearly event is a chance to swap your hiking boots and waterproofs for dinner jackets or dresses and sit down to an excellent three-course meal with the club, followed by much merriment and more than a little drinking!
