The family of Jonathan Conville established the Trust (Registered Charity number 293720) after he died on the Matterhorn in the winter of 1979, aged 27. He was a sound, ambitious climber who had been to school at Marlborough, spent some time in Australia, joined the Army (Paratroop Regiment) and taught at the Outward Bound School, Lock Eil. He identified strongly with the outdoors where he constantly found challenge. The Trust's aims are to encourage and assist young people to train for and pursue their love of the outdoors in the spirit of adventure, which Jonathan embraced during his life.
Patrons: Sir Chris Bonington CBE; Andy Cave.
