We did it!
What a week! We’re absolutely over the moon that we hit our funding target on Thursday evening and Boulder Hut is actually happening. Thank you so much to all our investors for making Boulder Hut a reality.
We've had some fantastic endorsements from members of our advisory board and also gained another excellent board member who has over 30 years organisational management and business development experience and is an active investor in a number of businesses.
On Friday, Sam attended the Active Cheshire’s Part of the Movement event, which is a campaign designed to bring organisations and individuals together to tackle one of Cheshire’s biggest issues - physical inactivity. The statistics are pretty shocking – 1 in 6 deaths are due to inactivity, the UK is more inactive than the USA, and 1 in 5 children starting school are obese. It was a great feeling to know that we’ve hit our funding target and are going to be able to do our bit to help this situation. If you haven’t already read our blog ‘8 reasons why climbing is the perfect addition to your healthy lifestyle’ it explains why climbing is such great exercise, and the perfect way to get active.
Now that we’ve reached our funding target, several people have asked us about our overfunding. As we have 8 days left we’re aiming to overfund to £345k, which will enable us to give Boulder Hut extra sparkle and make the facilities incredible, as well as increasing cashflow. So, if you haven’t already, please join us! We still have great rewards on offer including a lifetime climbing pass (which is exclusive to this Crowdcube fundraise).
We’re so excited that Boulder Hut is happening! Thanks again to all our investors.
