Watch Films to Support Ukraine!

by 0

The folks behind the Kendal Mountain Festival have pulled together a great selection of Ukraine based adventure films that you can watch on their Kendal Mountain Player.

The films all centre on the mountains in Ukraine, with subjects spanning biking, hiking, climbing, environment and even luge. All recent, and mainly short in length, the films are of amazing quality and unlikely to have been seen by most viewers.

100% of the money donated will go to British-Ukrainian Aid which supports people suffering from the war and humanitarian crisis, by aligning UK and Ukrainian efforts.

Kendal Mountain will match donate up to £1000 to show its support for Ukraine.

The collection will be available on the Kendal Mountain Player, from 27 May to the end of June.

Donate here and then you will be emailed the link to watch the collection.
