Story

When I am not training for the South Pole I am enjoying a gap year finalising my PADI Divemaster qualification and working in a local furniture store. I am also studying for an additional A-level in Chemistry.

In 2009 I am aiming to study Natural Sciences at Durham or Bath University, however the fact that I have become one of the youngest people ever to walk to the South Pole overshadows all of this. For details of the expedition please see www.southpole2009.com.

I hope to be able to contribute to the fundraising for leukaemia research and would be grateful if you would sponsor us below.

If you would prefer to donate by cheque, cash, money transfer or even green shield stamps please contact me by email at southpole2009@rocketmail.com.
