As a “for-profit” business, “Summit Up” is the trading subsidiary of “The Stoller Charitable Trust”, whose purpose has been to provide opportunities to raise aspirations, support Oldham’s young people to reach the height of their ability and to provide a helping hand when it is most needed. All of Summit Up’s profits will go directly to supporting charity. The motivation in creating the “Summit Up” Climbing Centre was to leave a lasting legacy for the next generation of the Oldham community.
