Please support our toughest mission yet... THE SOUTH POLE
In the last few years we have carried Peace Messages to far and high places of the Earth in the ancient Tibetan spirit of flying prayer flags to bring peace and harmony to all beings.
This year we took part in the South Pole Race. This involved skiing through crevasse fields onto the Antarctic plateau and across to the geographic South Pole at nearly 10,000 ft.. We pulled pulks loaded with all our survival equipment.
we left England on 14th Dec and raced for the month of Jan.
When the going was hard, yet another 10 hour day pulling a heavy sledge loomed, the intense cold bit and the wind threatened to blow us to oblivion... that's when we questioned our sanity... that's when it gave us so much strength to know that, because of our struggle, kind people were donating funds to help something as worthwhile as the MS Society.
It seems to us that the MS Society embodies the heart-warming and essential principal of offering compassionate help to those who have been dealt the hand of an extra struggle in life, that of MS.
Our lovely neighbour has MS. Over the years she has never been too tired or too busy to help us in every way possible, to always be there for us with a smile. As we tackled our extra struggle of trying to reach the South Pole we liked to think that this was a way of giving back...

THANK YOU SO MUCH
Tess and Pete
