Scale the heights for charity on Christmas Day
By David Wood
High-spirited adventure awaits as The Warehouse Climbing Centre in Gloucester opens its doors again for festive fun on Christmas Day.
Back by popular demand, a number of staff will be kindly volunteering their time to open the climbing centre on December 25 again for anyone who welcomes some Christmas adventure while raising money for the charity Climbers Against Cancer.
The main climbing arena and both bouldering floors will be open from between 9am to 2pm, while the CafeBar will be serving drinks and snacks.
No booking is required but 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 also be Climbers Against Cancer t-shirts available to purchase.
For anyone who would like to donate but won't be able to attend, they can simply 'book' a session for the 25th. 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.
Director Andrew Glassford said: "After the success of the event a few years ago, our team couldn't wait to run the Christmas climb again. Last year wasn't right with Covid, but the enthusiasm has been amazing this year - we couldn't say no!"
He added: "It's a fantastic cause and every penny we donate will go directly towards it. Everyone's welcome, and whether it's donating to a good cause, the opportunity to get in some climbing or just the chance to do something a little different on the big day, we look forward to welcoming you".
