Climb Supports Trust


Glenorchy boy Harry Hasselman recently raised $762 for the Routeburn Dart Wildlife Trust when he climbed the east peak of Mt Earnslaw as part of a school challenge. He said ‘it was good to get to the top of the highest local mountain and see as far as the west coast, Mt Tutoko, Mt Aspiring and Mt Cook way in the distance.’
The boys are expected to raise a bit of money as part of the challenge and Harry chose to give this to RDWT because it’s a great local initiative. ‘The Routeburn and Dart valleys are my backyard and it will be great to see the bird numbers improve.’
