My story

[p]Fundraising for: climate change education, mad 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]As a young person and a Guide (& now Scout too!), I have had so many amazing opportunities. When this one arose it seemed like the tip of the iceberg (pardon the pun). Summer 2019 I was selected to join a team of four Kent Scouts and two Scottish Scouts embarking on a sailing expedition from Ushuaia in South America, across the Drake Passage, to the[b] Antarctic Peninsular[/b]. Sailing on the tall ship 'The [b]Bark Europa[/b]', our journey will commemorate [b]100 years [/b]since [b]Sir Ernest Shackleton [/b]himself took [b]two Scouts [/b]on a similar expedition to the Frozen South. [/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]This expedition 'ReQuest' will go ahead in [b]2021[/b], but before then we have a lot of work to do!...[/p][p]Firstly, each participant must fundraise [b]£5000 and our team must raise £110,000.[/b] I know I will have to knuckle down hard over the next two years and if anyone can advise me of any relevant sailing/travel/charity grants or fundraising opportunities our team would be hugely grateful![/p][p]Secondly, each participant will engage in a personal project and 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]bl?og[/b]: [url=https://climatechangeguide.home.blog/the-badge/]https://climatechangeguide.home.blog/the-badge/[/url][/p][p]Thirdly, relating to both fundraising and my personal project, 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]
