An exciting new partnership with Montane will support our vital access, conservation, safety and youth work, by giving financial support at a time when government funding for sport is being reduced by recent changes to Sport England funding.
British brand Montane specialises in engineering innovative and intelligently designed lightweight, breathable clothing and equipment specifically for climbers, hill walkers and trail runners, and has done so for nearly 25 years.
This exciting new partnership enables Montane to support our vital access, conservation, safety and youth work, by giving financial support at a time when government funding for sport is being reduced by recent changes to Sport England funding.
The partnership with Montane is part of a wider BMC strategy to work with new commercial partners to bridge this funding gap. Montane is our second strategic partner, and follows on from Cotswold Outdoor and Snow+Rock becoming the BMC’s recommended retail partners this August.
Jake Doxat, Managing Director of Montane says:
“We are excited to be selected as the recommended clothing and pack partner of the BMC. This partnership not only gives Montane a strong platform through which to engage with the British climbing and hill walking communities, but also allows us to play a role in the active support of vital grassroots work undertaken by the BMC to ensure the continued rights of access and conservation of our much-loved outdoor spaces as well as encouraging young people to challenge themselves in the outdoors.”
Dave Turnbull, BMC CEO added:
“We’re excited to welcome Montane on board as our recommended clothing and pack partner. Montane is an independent British brand with an established reputation. Their involvement not only enables the BMC to address a funding gap, but sees us gain an enthusiastic, relevant and innovative partner with a strong interest in climbing and hill walking across the UK. We look forward to working with them”.
