Climbing centre opens its doors for charity on Christmas Day

A number of staff will be volunteering their time to open Gloucester's climbing centre on 25th December, for anyone who wants some Christmas adventure, while raising money for the charity Climbers Against Cancer.

The main climbing arena at the Warehouse Climbing Centre, as well as the adult and kids zone bouldering areas will be open from between 9am to 2pm. The cafe will be serving drinks and snacks, with donations from local suppliers, including a keg of beer from Gloucester Brewery and coffee from Ethical Addictions.

Director Andrew Glassford said: "To be honest, I wasn't sure the idea would take off! The initial reaction was one of surprise, but the response has been amazing. The goodwill of people offering their own time to raise funds for a good cause at this time of the year couldn't be more apt."

To help raise as much as possible, entry will be charged as a donation equal to the standard entry prices - even for regular members. There will be also Climbers Against Cancer T-shirts available to purchase. Every penny raised from the sales and entry will go to Climbers Against Cancer who, in turn, will use every penny to raise awareness and funds for cancer research.
