When I die, I want to die like my grandfather -- who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Looks good but think there needs to be a bit more space around the edges, particularly on the main text bit.  Also think you may want to write Mountain Rescue as well as having the logo, as when you first look at it you just the words "raising money for".

One other small thing.  Because the logos come under the words "with many thanks to" it makes the second two look like they are not centred properly, as they sit in the bottom of the white box, but I can see that this is to make them in line with toe Cotswold logo.  Not sure what the answer is but thought I'd point it out.

Not sure if you wanted comments on design, but I'm forever making posters at work so notice these things.

Raising Money for Mountain Rescue is in the first text bit, I did have the date there but wanted to show it was a charity event. Will look at the centering of everything :)

Also, not everyone will climb that far. I think I only did 50 climbs last time (500m) and alot of people did less.

I agree with Hannah on putting Moutain rescue in text at the top, it would read better.  Just put it underneath.

Maybe add "Please sponsor us at..." at the bottom before the website, just to make it extra clear we want people's money!!

And maybe also write "...otherwise we'll tell everyone what you did" as an incentive.
