Following the success of the 2021 Rucksack Club Calendar (we raised over £3,000 for Urban Uprising – check out https://www.thebmc.co.uk/rucksack-club-and-urban-uprising-team-up-for-2021-calendar as well as generating great publicity for The Club) we’ve decided to go again for 2022.
This year we are raising funds for Climbers Against Cancer (CAC) https://www.climbersagainstcancer.org/ Through the worldwide climbing community, CAC aims to increase awareness and raise funds for research in the continued fight against a disease that affects so many. Climbers Against Cancer is a non-profit organisation, with all proceeds donated directly to cancer research facilities throughout the world.
More than 50 Rucksack Club members contributed photos last year (either in front of or behind the lens) which is a brilliant advert for the vitality of The Club – Many thanks to everyone who took part (and of course to those who bought one!) We need your photos again this year. Ideally these will feature a Club Member or Associate Member in a relevant outdoor activity (last year we covered climbing, mountaineering, hill-walking, fell-running, MTB, bouldering, ice-climbing, ski-touring, caving and even unicycling! What more ways to ‘Get Out There!’ can we come up with?) Extra points for shots of people in a CAC T-shirt!
I’m hoping to keep the spirit of previous years and feature photos from the relevant month of 2020/21, but if needs be I’m open to a bit of flexibility in light of the lockdown. Please send LANDSCAPE photos in High Resolution with the filename in the format: MONTH_YEAR_SUBJECT_CAPTION_CREDIT for example June_2020_Dominic Oughton on a beach at Gogarth_Photo Helen Oughton. Please send photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re planning to ‘hit the shelves’ this year in early October, well ahead of the calendar / stocking-filler buying season, so the DEADLINE FOR PHOTOS IS 5 SEPTEMBER (only a month away). I will also be raiding the gallery section of the website (but don’t leave it to chance!)
So, What are you waiting for – get scouring your albums and sending in your pics – It’s your chance to Get In There!
