Corbetts for Courses

Tuesday 26th March 2019, 11:11am

Hill walkers can support mountain safety by climbing a Corbett this May.

Mountain Aid, the hill walkers’ charity promoting mountain safety, has announced its 2019 fundraising initiative, Corbetts 4 Courses.

People are being invited to give donations to Mountain Aid when they climb their Corbett, which will help the charity to continue offering free skills training and safety lectures.

To get involved people should:

  • Join the Mountain Aid Corbetts4Courses Facebook group (or contact them by email)
  • Choose a Corbett (there’s 222 of them)
  • Post your chosen Corbett to the Facebook group (or email Mountain Aid)
  • Climb your Corbett during May and share your summit photo to the group (or email it to Mountain Aid who will post it for you)
  • Make a donation to Mountain Aid (£10 is suggested but please give what you can).

Mountain Aid hopes to have put someone on the summit of every Corbett during the month of May.
