So the challenge is: Climb 40 routes or more if you can, or just climb as many routes as you and your team are able to – raising money for a good cause. This year on the 22nd of September, some climbing by headtorch expected!

Also a group of total novices have nervously agreed to do a sponsored 25 metre abseil, kindly provided by Leman from Climbing Dojo.

This year the fundraising is to create a sensory room for children with special needs, in St Patrick's Boys National school Donabate, County Dublin. They need €14,000 to create the space and have raised over €5,000 so far – we aim to help them towards their goal and have a great day’s challenging climbing in the process. Sensory rooms provide stimulation for children who are feeling passive and de-motivated, while equally being able to provide a calm and tranquil space for those with high energy – the Occupational Therapist can flex the visual, aural and touch sensory stimuli according to the individual needs of the child. Proven to be a great asset in the special needs education arena, children of all ability levels  in the school will also find solace in the space.

Your donations are very gratefully received by parents, staff and children alike.

So not only did you all help us to raise a fantastic amount of money, the school have already knocked a new doorway through, built a partition wall, and fitted out the sensory room. This is the first time we have been able to show the direct result of our fundraising and I am truly humbled by your generosity- heartfelt thanks.

So the novice abseilers did their abseil, the climbers climbed their marathon climb, Michal and Andy did the 40 routes, starting at 4:30 ish by headtorch, Dave and Sile finishing at 30 routes by headtorch all in all a great event, and we expect to have reached at least €5,500 by the time the final donations come through. Heartfelt thanks for all your contributions!

Andy, Maeve and the team
