The BIL Group were recently approached by Simon Parry from our local school The John Bentley School in Calne; seeking support for students at the school to take part in a once in a lift time trek through one of the remote areas of Norway.
The students will be departing on the expedition in August 2018 and at the moment are trying to fundraise the money themselves so they do not need to rely on their parents. On top of this they will have to raise additional money for getting to the airport by coach and buying their own expedition equipment.
While on expedition the students will be carrying all of their own equipment and food. They will be wild camping next to remote lakes on the top of some of the highest peaks in the area and running the expedition themselves. The students will be leading the expedition themselves with the support of the staff attending. They are responsible for completing all elements of the expedition from sorting out where to catch the boats, planes and ferries from to navigating through the wilderness. This expedition offer an incredible opportunity for the students as it allows them to develop so many skills and gives many the confidence boost that they really need. BIL are glad to support them with this adventure and have donated £500 towards the expedition.
They are still looking for further funding! If you are able to help please contact Simon Parry mailto:email@example.com
