Who are we supporting?
We’re supporting three different charities over the summer. As June is Pride month; we’ll be supporting London Friend (London Based LGBTQ+ support charity).
We’ve also got charities lined up for July and August. More about them on future posts.
Let’s get to know London Friend…
London Friend is the UK’s oldest LGBTQ+ charity, providing mental health and wellbeing support to our city’s communities. Volunteer-led, our skilled, reliable, and judgement-free teams have been delivering life-changing work to LGBTQ+ Londoners since 1972.
They offer help and advice to all LGBTQ+ people, providing one-to-one counselling, a range of social and support groups including coming out support, trans and non-binary support, creative groups, conversational English classes and more, Antidote, a specialist LGBT drug and alcohol service.
Their work is supported by over 100 dedicated volunteers, who collectively won the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2016.
Visit londonfriend.org.uk for more details of how to get involved and information on how to self-refer for their services.

The event really is open to any climber no matter what their grade. The problems will all be in the V0-V7 range with most of the problems being under V5. The event is a time for you to climb with friends, or meet new ones, during a fun sociable evening with good tunes and fresh new climbs around the centre.
