Hope rises out of the ashes

Following the widely publicised case of black outdoor instructor Sam Farmer's ordeal at the hands of racists who burned down his equipment store at St Agnes in Cornwall. Thanks to the sterling efforts of climbers who read of his plight on the UKC climbing forum; a fighting fund has been established with a website where donations and messages of support can be left.
Over £70k worth of equipment and Sam's partner's art works were destroyed in the racially motivated arson attack and the race is on to get Sam back on track to enable 'The Hope Project' to run outdoor pursuits for socially disadvantaged children this summer. Please help by donating to The Hope Project fund  and send a message to the neanderthal thugs that their campaign of violence and intimidation will never succeed.
