James Brownhill Memorial Fund

Scottish winter mountaineering for full-time students

James Brownhill was an avid climber and mountaineer who tragically died in an accident on the Frendo Spur in Chamonix. Following his death, his family members established the fund to encourage and foster a higher level of safety, good practice and sustainability amongst young climbers and mountaineers.

The fund subsidises eight dedicated places on a Plas y Brenin Scottish Winter Mountaineering course every year. Applicants must be over 18 years old and be in full-time education.
