Last week we had several theory lessons with our expedition leader, these included: Polar Bear safety, Tent drills, Stove Drills and Firearms safety!

I have just been told that the expedition has been featured in the newsletter of The Tewkesbury Chamber of Commerce and Industry:

Sponsor Max’s great adventure


The Chamber has received the following plea from Max Keene


“I am 13 years old and soon I will be attempting an Arctic Expedition in Northern Canada from 15th March - 7th April 2013 to raise money for Help For Heroes. I recently saw many injured servicemen and women competing at the Paralympic Games, I watched the inspirational TV programme 'Harry's Arctic Heroes', in which Prince Harry and a group of injured soldiers trek to the North Pole.

I think that the Injured Servicemen and women of our armed forces are an inspiration, they risk their lives to keep our country and other nations around the world safe and free, and when they get a limb blown off in battle they deserve the best support they can get....


So far, I have raised £2,629.75. My target is £50,000. If your business would like to sponsor Max’s great adventure follow this link
