The Polar Expeditions evening was a huge success with over 150 people attending and really positive feedback received. Mr Peter Fuchs’ talk & film showing original footage of the first Antarctic crossing was fascinating and a real privelage to watch. Dr Simon Boxall was a compelling speaker, showing a real passion for his research on global warming in the Arctic. A big thank you to everyone who came and made the evening such a success. A particular thank you to those who gave a donation to my expedition – £530 in total was raised which more than exceeded my expectations. If anyone would like to be added to my email distribution list to be informed of my progress in preparing for the expedition, they should email me on [email protected]. Also don’t forget to do your shopping at http://www.buy.at/lhilton1 - you can get lots of discounts off your shopping at all the major retailers and a percentage will be donated to my expedition each time you shop.
