Reminder of Closing Date for GPF Winter Applications


New member
Just a reminder to all those planning Caving Expeditions that will fall between March 2018 and Oct 2018, the closing date for your application to be considered by the Ghar Parau Foundation is the END OF THIS MONTH. That's only 3 weeks time :D :D!!:chair:. Please don't leave it to the last minute as if problems arise we cannot accept late applications :cry: :cry:

Applications are submitted by the Ghar Parau Foundation website: www.gharparau.org.uk.

There has be a surprisingly low number of applications so far this round, which is very disappointing considering how much fund raising the GPF committee have been doing. Its good for those that have already applied - more money :clap: :clap: ), Please use the fund to help your expedition, it is what it is there for - TO HELP YOU.

Any questions contact me "The Ghar Parau Foundation Secretary" via the website

3 weeks left!!!!
