Jonathan Conville Memorial Trust

We fund young & inexperienced climbers to train & prepare them for the mountains

Charity Registration No. 293720

Story

Before I was born, my uncle Jonathan Conville, died climbing the Matterhorn aged 27. Not long after "The Jonathan Conville Memorial Trust" (http://www.jcmt.org.uk) was established. It provides young, enthusiastic people with vital training that focuses on safety and security in the mountains. Training of this sort can otherwise be expensive, and the main fear is that without affordable training such as that provided by JCMT, young people will continue to pursue their outdoor goals ill prepared and at far greater risk. I am a young climber my-self, and from my very limited exposure to the climbing world, I have experienced first hand how integrated JCMT is to the climbing scene, and how much young people benefit from it. 


I ask for your donation to help keep this charity alive and to help keeping young people with a passion for the outdoors and the mountains safe.

Any and all donations will go directly towards ensuring the charity can keep providing the essential training to ensure young people can continue their pursuits in a safer and more secure environment."


As long as there are mountains… there will be a place for the Trust.”
