Almost one hundred years ago in 1921 the great explorer Ernest Shackleton selected two scouts to join him on his final Quest expedition to Antarctica.
In 2021 on the 100th Anniversary Kent Scouts hope to recreate this experience for thirty network scouts and ten adult leaders to have an a life changing experience and raise awareness of Scouting's strong links with the wild Antarctic continent.
We need the funds in place by 31st December 2017 so we can secure a booking of the antarctic sailing vessel required for the recreation of the final part of this incredible voyage. As well as the group fundraising of £306,470 each participant will also have to personally fundraise a further £5000 each towards the cost of the expedition.
We are thrilled that Felicity Aston MBE (@felicity_aston) the first woman
to ski across Antarctica alone has agreed to be our patron for ReQuest2021.
