Local charity, Climbing Out, is looking for sponsors to help fund filming equipment so it can produce new promotional videos. The charity, which helps people rebuild their mindset following trauma, wants to create videos on each of their programmes this year, which includes an expedition in Sweden.
Charity founder, Kelda Wood MBE, said, “We’re calling out to the brilliant businesses of Shropshire to see if anyone would be kind enough to sponsor the purchase of new filming equipment for Climbing Out. We’re hoping to fund some equipment and editing help so we can film content on every programme this year, and also make a new promotional film to share with people wanting to find out more about what we do.
“It’ll also enable us to capture some of the life-changing work that happens on our 5 day programmes. Any major sponsor would feature at the end of our 2023 videos, which we intend on sharing far and wide!
“We find that sharing video content from our outdoor programmes is really impactful, helping people to understand what we do. We would be so grateful for any support helping us to spread the word about Climbing Out.”
The charity’s programmes are held across the UK. The 5 day residential trips combine outdoor activities and mental resilience coaching. They work with adults who have had their lives derailed by an injury or illness, or PTSD or anxiety linked to a traumatic event, to take control of their mindset, actions and behaviours.
This year alone they will be running seven core programmes, a mountaineering expedition in Scotland, a wilderness canoeing expedition in Sweden, several walk and talk days and their annual fundraising hike.
