Including the recently-announced £105k outcome of the 2021 event, the running total of KHC’s charity donations since its revival in 2009 has reached £870k.
The 2021 sum has already been distributed to a wide range of local charities or good causes, which have received grants of up to £5,000 for specifically- designated purposes. They cover a broad range of needs to help hundreds of local people, including children, the elderly, those socially isolated and those struggling with mental illness and life-limiting circumstances. A full listing of those who received an award can be found on the KHC website (www.kophillclimb.org.uk).
The event is run entirely by volunteers, whose efforts were marked by a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2020.
This year’s event is scheduled for the weekend of September 24/25. Early Bird spectator tickets are now available from the website above.”
