One of our Fellows, Paul Reeve, completed an 'Arctic Challenge for a cause' in March, individually raising over £2500 for the Dickinson Family.
The trek, in northern Finland, included cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and dog-sledding, along with the frozen lake 'ice-dip challenge' in temperatures around –15C.
The Arctic Challenge team of 18 set about raising money to help provide for Caz Dickinson and her family. As a result of a fall, Caz Dickinson sustained a serious head injury and team sponsors have contributed to the provision of extensive home facilities that will allow for Caz’s development and care.
