The club were delighted to host Paul Braithwaite, the well known climber and mountaineer who gave a talk about his climbing experiences. The evening was organised by the East Cheshire Hospice Wilmslow Support Group and with over 100 attending, was a huge success raising £1,200 for East Cheshire Hospice (ECH).
ECH Spokesman Ned Spencer said: “Paul's talk was both informative and inspiring. His tales of climbing up Everest (and other mountains) were awe inspiring. His modest presentation style made little of the life threatening adventures he experienced. The many questions he was asked at the end of the talk showed how engaged the audience were. The success of this talk is down to the hard work and enthusiasm of our member Chris Manley. The local ECH Support Group is busy planning a number of different events - please get involved and for more information email: firstname.lastname@example.org”
Chris Manley thanked Paul for his excellent talk, the ECH Support Team for their help, the attendees for supporting ECH, and also thanked AEGC - Chris Hoyland and his team, and Hilary Gradon, for hosting the event and looking after the attendees so well.
