CWMT launches on Sustainably

We have recently launched the Chris Walker Memorial Trust (CWMT) on a charitable giving platform called Sustainably. The CWMT have always requested donations to support the delivery of avalanche training workshops, and want to thank the outdoor community for their continued support.

Without additional donations the provision of avalanche awareness workshops, deliv- ered by Forecasters from the Scottish Avalanche Information Service (SAIS), simply wouldn’t be possible.

In these challenging times of the Coronavirus pandemic we all have to consider what expenditure is essential. Although all our workshops were delivered as planned this year, it is inevitable that the way ahead will be challenging for charities and the CWMT is no exception.

Since the inception of the CWMT approximately 400 leaders, instructors and guides have benefited from additional training workshops in Scotland, as well as sharing their knowledge with others.

We would like to appeal to leaders, instructors and guides, and the wider outdoor community to consider signing up to the new Sustainably app. This new and innova- tive app allows you to donate automatically by ‘Round Ups’ when making everyday purchases. This allows you to have an impact on the outdoor community every time you shop.

What are Round Ups?

Turn your everyday spare change into impact with Round Ups from Sustainably. Simply connect your bank card and Sustainably will calculate your Round Ups from your everyday purchases, like coffees, groceries, or new crampons, as you shop.

Sustainably will keep track of your Round Ups and every time they reach £5, they’ll donate it to the CWMT.

Where can I find the Sustainably App?
