Madagascar slideshow at MCSA

Post by Justin » Tue Sep 03, 2013 1:11 pm

Leo Le Roux, Benj de Charmoy and Duncan Fraser went on a trip to Madagascar recently and opened a route there. They received lots of help from the MCSA expedition fund and the Supertramp award, but still had a very tight budget.

Tonight they are giving a talk at the MCSA and would like to raise some funds to boost the expedition fund for next years recipients, in that way starting a bit of a “paying it forward” tradition where each year the recipients of the expedition fund grant have a fundraising (donations) event for the next years recipients.

The climbing wall is open from 6pm as usual, and there will be a cash-bar following the new-member social which takes place beforehand.
Date: Tuesday 3rd Sep

That's great - good to hear!

I think initiatives like the Supertramp award are so important and are worth the work required to keep them going :thumright
