As part of it’s on-going development, the Mountain Heritage Trust is pleased to announce it has secured almost £50,000 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The project is designed to examine the Trust's current position and consider its role for the future, including how it can raise awareness of this nationally important collection and make it accessible to a wider range of people.

MHT is hosting a fundraising lecture given by Sir Chris Bonington and Ueli Steck about their exploits entitled “Triumph and Tragedy on the Eiger”at the RGS on Thursday 1st December at 7pm.  Sir Chris will talk about his first ascent in 1966 and Ueli will expand on his incredible solo climb in 2008.
