A note about the Outdoor Adventure Club:
The OAC is a 'not for profit' organisation under the supervision of the government appointed CIC Regulator. It is run entirely for the benefit for its members and organisers receive no financial gain for the time and skills they volunteer.
A contribution of £5 is requested for this walk because currently we need to raise money so we can develop a fund to pay for training and provide basic equipment for a leadership team. This team will need first aid skills and proper navigation training which is quite costly. On top of this we need to pay for insurance and accountancy fees. It all adds up and your contribution is greatly appreciated. However if you are unemployed or facing financial hardship please let us know and we are happy for you to join the walk without making any financial contribution.
Refunds are not offered for this Meetup.
