On Friday night a few members of the Rab team got all dressed up and went to a ball! Now this isn’t something we do every weekend but this particular ball was one we just didn’t want to miss. Our sponsored professional Squash Falconer had organised the evening to raise money for both ‘Wings of Kilimanjaro’ and a local hospice called ‘Treetops’.
Wings of Kilimanjaro is a fantastic project where a group of adventurers from every corner of the globe, including Squash Falconer, will come together for a once in a lifetime world record breaking event to climb and fly from Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest free standing mountain on the planet (5,895m), and in doing so will raise over a million dollars for charity. http://wingsofkilimanjaro.com/index.php/home/
Treetops Hospice is a local hospice near to where Squash grew up and is also right next door to Risley Hall Hotel where the ball took place! http://www.treetopshospice.org.uk/
As part of the evening there was a charity auction where some great items were auctioned off. One of the items was a fantastic Rab duvet which was hand made by one of our members of staff. Made from top quality fabrics and filled with top quality down we’re really pleased that the winning bidder paid £650 for it.
The whole evening raised £10,000 and everyone had a fantastic time. Well done Squash for organising such a great event.
