Rotary Mid-Wirral Club This year's Challenge 2021-22.
Our aim this year with all that Covid has thrown at us is to help the next generation who have missed out on education. "Classrooms in the Clouds" in Nepal are building a school library to enable youngsters to be exposed to reading material and they have willingly agreed to name it in honour of our dear friend AW-J. We will also be supporting Wirral Youth Zone charity to set up a book library at "The Hive" Birkenhead for local children.
The inspiration for this was hearing about the Dolly Parton Imagination Foundation, set up because her own father was illiterate, and through it she has now distributed 150 million books to youngsters in English speaking counties aged under 5 years of age. I thought that we, the club members, should climb the "Birth Mountain" of the person who Inspired and Influenced You at Aged 0-5 years old.
Choose any hill/mountain within a 50 mile radius of wherever your inspiring person was born. This is likely to be ones parents or grand-parents or relatives or close family friends who spent time reading to you at the age of 0 to 5.
Calculate its height. Either climb it, or its equivalent height or appropriate distance (at rate of 1000 feet height climbed equates to 5 miles length) or even a mixture of climbing & walking. This can be done at any time and over anytime during the month July 2021. You don't need to do it "from 9 to 5" as per the song!! It can be done using your stairs at home, or outside or even on the "golf course" provided you are actually physically walking or climbing. I do understand some members might find this challenging.
Video or photography yourself doing the challenge and send the images to Andrew Cain for inclusion on our Facebook pages.
Tell your friends and family what you are up to and let them know of the "Give as you Live" website - https://donate.giveasyoulive.com/fundraising/climbing-your-birth-hillmountain There is also a box on the web site that enables the claiming of "Gift-Aid" on donations where appropriate. An alternative principally for members can be by donating via our treasurer, Stephen Bell - just send him an email . The email address is :- firstname.lastname@example.org
If you also let me know what you have climbed I can add it to our "Give as you Live" page.

On Sunday 11th July I completed the Climb of Ben Cleuch a 721m hill -the highest in the in the Ochils - being the "Birth Mountain" of my Great Aunt who was my Inspiring person who read to me as a child. My son Al and his girlfriend M. joined me. Rained fortunately only on our way down having completed the Ben Cleuch circular following the www.walkhighlands.co.uk website.
