Ceinwen Faulkner
Memorial Trust

Ceinwen's Story

In April 1996 Ceinwen was killed when she had a 300m fall whilst ski-touring in France. She was a keen skier and climber who was well aware of the risks inherent in being in the mountains. She often used the services of a qualified Mountain Guide when venturing into the hills.

Following her death her family and friends set up the Ceinwen Faulkner Memorial Trust to promote safety in the mountains so that many people could get the kind of enjoyment from being in the mountains that Ceinwen did.

What We Do

The aim of the Trust is to provide financial assistance to promote the safe enjoyment of the mountain environment. We are fully reliant on voluntary contributions.

Since 1997 we have been providing funds to the Association of British Mountain Guides to assist with the financial burden on young British climbers and skiers who are training to become fully certified UIAGM Mountain Guides.

Since 2002 the Trust has been helping to finance a series of avalanche awareness talks. Henry's Avalanche Talks are based in Val d'Isere and every year attract a huge number of recreational skiers who want to learn more about avalanches.

We are always keen to look at any other proposals that may fit our remit.
