How to donate: We will be organizing collections at all Wainwright
Society events in the future until further notice. The first collection event
will be the Memorial Lecture at Rheged on Saturday 25th October
2014. We will also collect at Society AGMs and, hopefully, at most Society
walks. Just bring your donations and we will do the rest, getting the gear to
Rohan, the project coordinators, for onward distribution.
Note: If you
are not intending to come to any Society events in the near future but have
gear you can donate, visit the website below where you will find details of other
ways to donate.
