|On behalf of our expedition team of adults and young people, I would like to say the expedition was a complete success!
We all returned to the UK on 18th June, exhausted, happy and full of incredible memories which will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
The supporting adults on the expedition witnessed the young people having the time of their lives, engaging in activities they would never have had the opportunity to do without your support, and responding at a level that can’t be put down in words.
We were all struck by the enthusiasm, bravery, resilience and ability to adjust to a very different environment that all the young people showed, and how they were able to communicate with us daily about their new experiences.
As you know, a lot of people worked very hard for 18 months to raise the much needed funds and organise the logistics for this significant undertaking. I am proud to say the team has done it – our young people have achieved what many people would call impossible.
Thank-you to all who have believed on our young people, and supported them to make this dream a reality!
