Weʼre raising £5,000 to Cam & Bear fund for adventure
- Cheltenham, United Kingdom
- In memory
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In memory of Andrew Foster, we are raising funds that will be used to help young people, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, to experience, enjoy and respect the great outdoors and our natural environment through adventures such as climbing, skiing, surfing and other similar activities.
Andy's love of the outdoors and the natural world was absolutely infectious. As a passionate climber, Andy loved learning new skills and in turn absolutely revelled in sharing his knowledge and experience with others. Sadly Andrew was taken from us in a tragic rock fall accident in the most heroic and brave circumstances shielding and saving someone he loved.
We would therefore like to honour his memory, general enthusiasm for life and love for encouraging others to experience the great outdoors, by establishing the 'Cam & Bear fund for adventure'. Our ultimate mission is to establish an ongoing charity in Andrew's name, aimed at providing young people more opportunities to experience the types of activities that Andrew loved, whilst also learning the importance of protecting our natural environment. You can learn more about the type of person Andrew was by visiting his 'blog' that he and his wife had set up to share their adventures, experience and tips on climbing to hopefully inspire others: https://www.camandbearuk.com/

Hello Julie and Dave, how are you? I’m really, really sorry I didn’t make it to support you guys at the Patagonia sale at Up and Under yesterday. I’m making a donation to the Cam and Bear Fund. Angiex

I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting you Andy, but heard a lot about you from Daren and enjoyed reading your adventures. I hope many others are now able to experience some of what you were able to.
