Without the amazing support from our many funders, it would be impossible for Climbing Out to do the incredible work that we do. So many individuals, clubs, Foundations and Trusts have supported us it would be impossible to thanks them all, but we are extremely grateful to each and every one of you.

Many of the young people and their families have been out doing they’re own fundraising too, and it’s fantastic to see all the challenging, inspiring and amazing things people have been up to.

Climbing Out is also organising some exciting fund raising events of its own. Please see our fundraising calendar for more information.

If you’re interested in organising a fundraiser yourself, we can support you with promotional material, t shirts, collecting tins etc. Please contact Kelda on keldawood@climbingout.org.uk to chat your ideas through.

Before my kidney transplant in April 2015, I was struggling like mad. I gave up the things I loved, lost contact with friends, and rarely left the house. At the time, I thought I was doing okay, and resigned myself to the fact that maybe this is what life with kidney disease was going to be like.

Fast forward, just 3 months post transplant, and I was climbing mountains, and abseiling down cliffs. My transplant gave me back my energy, but Climbing Out gave me back my confidence, and self-esteem

Climbing out has absolutely changed my life for the better. It has helped me develop confidence, given me an awesome friendship group, increase my self believe and was the motivation I needed to kick start my life!

Fund Raising Reports

My trip with Climbing Out was absolutely brilliant. We were all pushed out of our comfort zones and achieved things we never thought we could. I gained confidence in myself that I didn’t know I had, confidence to keep going and not give up. Seeing everyone come out of their shells and grow bolder as the week went on gave me such a good feeling, and I went home happy, exhausted, and desperately proud of everyone I was with.
