After the first of the two terrible earthquakes that struck Nepal, TCA Glasgow & Bristol raised almost £1500 which was donated to Community Action Nepal. At TCA Glasgow we aim to help further by having a special fundraising weekend to continue to raise awareness and support the relief efforts. This will tie in with another UK based fundraising effort, the "Sir Chris Bonington Community Action Nepal Everest Challenge" AKA #climbforCAN. For a donation to CAN there will be an opportunity for anyone that has never been to TCA Glasgow before to come and have a go and see what bouldering is all about.
