Get Exploring Trust
GET aims to inspire people from all backgrounds to get into the outdoors, to test themselves in different environments, and to push their limits. We want to help people develop their character through exposure to challenging, exciting and inspiring experiences. The Trust offers small to medium size grants to individuals who need financial support in order to achieve this aim.

Hi, thanks for visiting our page.

In October 2016 Will and George will set off on a 3 month sea kayak expedition extraordinaire, paddling the full 2000 miles from Grenada to Miami. No support team. No safety boat. The team will be taking on some challenging conditions, enduring open water crossings up to 90 miles, and various risks including blistering heat, physical and mental exhaustion, big swells, razor reefs, rocks, sharks and other sea monsters to name but a few.

We are enduring all this to launch fundraising for the Get Exploring Trust. GET aims to inspire and enable young people to get out into the outoors, to challenge themselves in new environments and activities and develop through exposure to different and exciting situations. This is becoming ever more important in an age where outdoor pursuits, expeditions and challenges are becoming less and less of a focus for young people. This expedition is the launchpad for us to start our fundraising to make the Get Exploring Trust a success.

We really appreciate all your support and are enormously grateful for any donations you may be able to offer.
