Mountain stars set for UCLan visit

Two of the world's top mountain athletes are coming to UCLan to showcase the virtues of Mountaineering, Climbing and the Greater ranges Sherpa.

Kenton Cool and Neil Gresham will deliver lectures and host a discussion about mountaineering and rock climbing.

The event, organised by Preston Mountaineering Club, will follow an early evening of climbing masterclasses at West View Leisure Centre featuring Neil and Ed Hamer.

The purpose of the evening is to help raise awareness and monies for the Paldorje Education Fund. This provides much-needed head-start scholarships to less fortunate Sherpa children in Nepal.

The event takes place on Friday, 31 October, 2014. For more information, including booking details, please click here.
