We are hugely excited to announce that we have smashed through the 25% threshold for our Crowdfunded Campaign to enable our expedition to go ahead and to help allow us to deliver our Educational Outreach and Legacy Programmes. This amazing news is thanks to the NAAFI (Navy, Army, Air Force Institute) who have made a major contribution to our expedition, which we extremely grateful for. This donation comes in a significant year for the NAAFI and one that is linked to our own 100th anniversary of Shackleton’s Quest Expedition, as it is the 100th Anniversary of the NAAFI’s creation and we are proud to have them as partners to our Quest expedition. We are hopeful that having obtained this goal, Plymouth Community Change Fund will look favourably on our application for match-funding. This is a great step forward for our Crowdfunding campaign and we now need everyone to step up to the plate and help us achieve our target so we can retain the donations we have had pledged so far – every donation is a step towards that target, irrespective of how large or how small, so please do come and visit the Crowdfunded page and make a donation. Thank you so much to the NAAFI.
