Nice to see Adidas no longer abuse children in third world sweatshops to make their shoes ... I'm sure chucking a few quid at charity events makes those years of exploitation all ok.

They'll probably take all 100000 to Lawrencefield and set up top ropes on a bank holiday.

More seriously, I have mixed feelings - good to do something for kids (other than teach them sewing), and climbing can be life-changing (life-forming?), but will the kids get to choose?
