Back home from Greenland


It’s been a few days now since we’ve returned from our incredible expedition in Greenland, however, the lessons learned and experiences gained will last a lifetime for everyone involved. 

These young people from Bo’ness and Stranraer have overcome so many barriers in the past 12 months but their struggles with anxiety, confidence and self belief has now been proved as something which no longer has the power to stop them achieving in life. Just by placing one foot in front of the other will always take you to where you need to be in life. The key is to be brave enough to take that first step. 

They all now have the privilege of sharing their stories with thousands other children across Scotland, inspiring them to take that first step. 

A huge thanks needs to go to my fantastic staff, quite simply they are the best Polar Guiding team on the Planet. Nigel, George, Jess, Mike, Alex, Rich, Vic, Arran and of course the incredible Lorna, thank you all.
