My story

[p]In 1921 Ernest Shackleton took two Scottish Scouts as members of his last expedition to the Antarctic aboard his ship Quest. [/p][p]I have been lucky enough to be part of the team that commemorates the centenary of that voyage, and one of only two Scouts from Scotland selected by Kent Scouts to go. [/p][p]The team will all be sailing from Argentina to Antarctica aboard the Bark Europa. She is a three masted ship built in 1911 and we will get the opportunity to be part of the crew.[/p][p]As well as getting the opportunity to travel to one of the most amazing places in the world I will also be undertaking a research project[/p][p]In order to get to the final destination I need to raise £10,000 and so any amount of support I can get will be hugely appreciated. If you are unable to donate please share my page on social media. Check my personal Facebook and Instagram pages for updates and also follow the whole team on the webpage www.[/p][p]request2021.org.uk/[/p]
