Join the Jonathan Conville Trust

Posted by Jon Garside on 30/08/2021

The Jonathan Conville Memorial Trust forward is seeking a new Trustee with social media and website expertise.

The Trust was established in 1980, shortly after Jonathan Conville’s death, to provide professionally delivered subsidised mountaineering training courses for young people, especially in the Alpine environment, where Jonathan died and which he loved. Over 5000 young people have since attended one of the Trust’s courses, currently overseen and delivered by the Trust’s training partner Plas y Brenin.

Whilst the Trust is held in very high regard within the mountaineering community, and their courses are ever popular, the Trustees are conscious that its very limited social media presence may be limiting the audience aware of their courses. An improved social media presence will also help with future fund raising activities. The website element of the role is to update content on the Trust's website on a very occaisonal basis. No expertise in building or designing websites is required.

Further details about the volunteer post can be found by clicking below. The closing date is 30 September with the new Trustee to be appointed in time for them to attend the Trust’s AGM at the BMC’s Manchester offices on Saturday 16 October.

The most impressive traverse ever completed?

Belgian climber Sean Villanueva O'Driscoll has been willingly stuck in Patagonia since Covid-19 kicked off, and making the most of it: jaws dropped around the climbing world when he became the first to solo the Fitz Roy Traverse late last week. This epic route, fantasised about by anyone who has ever seen a photo of the jagged skyline above El Chalten, was first completed by the dream simul-climbing team of Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell in 2014. The route traverses the iconic Cerro Fitz Roy and its six satellite peaks: 5km of ridge line with around 4000m of vertical gain.
