Memorial Trusts

Memorial Trusts
The British Mountain Guides acknowledge the financial assistance of an increasing number of Trusts who support the Training Scheme and the ongoing continuing professional developments of our members.


Fred Harper Trust
The Fred Harper Memorial Trust was established on the 12th October 2000. The Trust has the following aims and objectives:


The Jules Cartwright Trust
The objects of the trust are to advance the education for the public in the skills required for the leadership and instruction of safe hill, mountain and moorland walking, mountaineering, rock and ice climbing and other associated activities practised in hill and mountain environments by the provision of grants. The Jules Cartwright Trust have given considerable support over the years to the BMG by providing a generous grant to candidates at the stage of the Scottish Winter Training.


The Ceinwen Faulkner Trust
Since 1997 The Ceinwen Faulkner Trust has generously provided funds to the British Mountain Guides to assist with the financial burden on young British climbers and skiers who are training to become fully certified IFMGA Mountain Guides over the last ten years.  www.Anglefire.com


Chris Walker Memorial Trust
The Trust will also provide continuing professional development funding on an annual basis to provide additional training in avalanche awareness in Scotland to British Mountain Guides and members of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors. In January 2012, based in Fort William, Mark Diggins ran the first of these courses entitled: Avalanche Hazard Evaluation considerations for a Scottish snowpack. www.chriswalkertrust.co.uk


Roger Payne Memorial Trust
The life of Roger Payne was cut short on 12th July 2012 in an avalanche on Mont Maudit in the French Alps. The breadth of his contribution to life in general and mountain training in particular was extraordinary. As an instructor, guide and mountaineer, he had unrivalled enthusiasm for passing on his knowledge and great communication skills with people all over the world. It’s sadly ironic that he was an innovator in the development of avalanche training for both skiers and mountaineers.

The Roger Payne Memorial Fund carrys on his work by supporting a annual continuing professional development course in risk management for BMG Members.
