LGM Climbs Mount Ahir to raise money for DEC Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal
Fundraising for Disasters Emergency Committee
A series of devastating earthquakes have hit southern Turkey and north-west Syria killing at least 9,000 people and injuring many more.
People have been left without shelter in freezing winter conditions. Access to clean water will likely be a challenge, bringing the risk of cholera and other diseases.
LGM is hoping to do a small bit to help. Mt Ahir is the tallest mounting within the region hit by the earthquake and stands at 2344m
The LGM teams therefore intends to climb 2344 vertical metres at the Blue Spider climbing centre in Guildford.
The team are not experienced climbers and each person will need to climb 293m or roughly 30 assents of the climbing wall!
DEC charities and their local partners are among the first responders, working with locally-led relief efforts to ensure people have food and clean water.
People need help now. Please donate.
