© BMC Join us at an informal event to celebrate the life of Roger Payne at Manchester Town Hall on Saturday 8 September, starting at 6.30pm.
Roger Payne – former general secretary of the BMC and mountain guide – died in the recent accident on Mont Maudit that claimed nine lives.
Roger was well known across many branches of world climbing and, following church services in Leysin and London, there will an informal event to celebrate his life in Manchester on Saturday 8 September.
Finally, Julie-Ann Clyma will talk about their climbing lives together; the mountain guiding that brought them into contact with so many people; and what that meant to her and Roger.
There will be a light buffet afterwards.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed pictures of Roger and donations to the fund so far. We look forward to seeing you on 8 September and celebrating Roger's life with a few beers.
