Fundraising at Clip 'n Climb Cambridge
Clip 'n Climb Cambridge can provide the perfect venue for your next engaging and fun charity challenge for companies. Choose between three different challenges for companies with teams of between 6 and 36 people.
Fun, engaging charity events
We work with local charities in Cambridgeshire to provide a venue for engaging, challenging and fun charity events in Cambridge.
For just £250, you can rent the climbing arena for two hours, and invite teams of people who are climbing to raise money for your charity.
As a charity, you are responsible for finding your teams, and deciding whether there is an entrance charge, or whether each team needs to commit to raising a certain amount of money.
We will provide the venue, and manage the climbing and challenges on the night, alongside your representative. We give everyone a full safety briefing before they climb.
Refreshments are available from our cafe at an extra cost.
Challenges for charity
We have three charity challenges:
- Ben Nevis
- Three Peaks
The Ben Nevis challenges works really well for six teams of six people. Within an hour, each team needs to climb 224 walls (38 walls per person) which is the equivalent of the height of Ben Nevis (1,344m).
This challenge is harder, with the team needing to climb 568 walls (3,045m), the same as the UK's highest peaks, Ben Nevis, Snowdon, Scafell Pike. This challenge is best done with either two teams going quickly, or one team taking a bit more easy!
Mount Everest is 8,848m (1,475 walls). This challenge is best for just one team of 26 climbers, who each need to climb 39 walls each.
In October 2019, we hosted an event for the amazing charity, Something To Look Forward to. Click here to read about their event.
To add a bit of extra drama to your event, we can also host the following within your time at Clip 'n Climb:
- Speedwall Challenge
- Triffid climb - who can climb our hardest walls?
Invite companies to join the fun
There is something for everyone at Clip 'n Climb Cambridge, whether the company have 36 keen climbers, or whether they have just 6. As a charity, you could invite companies that you have an existing link with, or use this as an opportunity to work with new companies.
You may want to have a range of companies participating, or you may wish to invite companies from similar industries to compete against each other for the quickest time.
These events are for people with climbing experience, as well as complete novices. Companies that have participated in them have not found it hard to raise money for these challenges, with an average of £3,000 being raised from six teams from six companies.
Please note that all monies raised are for your charity to collect.
