The reception will be hosted personally by The Rt Hon Gordon Brown MP and attended by government ministers, MPs, members of the House of Lords and senior civil servants. The BMC has submitted a list of people to be invited including senior figures from the mountaineering world and key partner organisations, a number of BMC volunteers, competition climbers, the outdoor media and leading grassroots activists in rock climbing, mountaineering, hill walking, and exploration. Guest numbers are limited so regrettably not everyone can be invited. ( Source: BMC )
