My story

[p]Fundraising for: climate change education, a slightly bonkers adventure, commemoration of a legend, the inspiration of young people, krill conservation and more…[url=http://www.request2021.org.uk/penguins/lucys-scout-radio-interview/] listen to me explain the project here[/url].[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Alternately, here are more details...[/b][/p][p]The ReQuest2021 Scout [b]tall ship sailing expedition[/b] from South America to Port Lockroy in [b]Antarctica commemorates 100 years[/b] since Sir Ernest [b]Shackleton [/b]invited two Scouts to join him on his 1921 'Quest' expedition.[/p][p][b]Our patrons [/b]are: Alexandra Shackleton (great-granddaughter of the man himself); James Ketchell (adventurer who has summited Everest amongst many other feats) and Felicity Aston (first woman to ski solo across Antarctica, she also went to school in Tonbridge!).[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]The expedition will sail in December 2021, but before then we have a lot of work to do!...[/p][p]1) Each participant must fundraise [b]£5000-£10,000 [/b]and[b] [/b]our team must raise [b]£110,000 [/b]in total. [/p][p]2) Each participant will engage in a personal project. Mine involves [b]offsetting the carbon footprint[/b] of our journey through [b]climate change education[/b], particularly in relation to this fragile continent. This includes setting up a [b]challenge badge[/b] and educational [b]blog[/b]: [url=https://climatechangeguide.home.blog/the-badge/]https://climatechangeguide.home.blog/the-badge/[/url][/p][p]3) We aim to [b]inspire more young people[/b] to be adventurous and educate them about Shackleton and climate change. If you are connected to a troop or unit and would like me to run an evening or are interested in undertaking my 'Stop Climate Change' or Penguin related challenge badge, please let me know! [/p][p]For now, thank you so much for your donations and support! [/p]
