This last month we gave a tester Arctic Training & Expeditions Experience to some of the executive team from The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Charity.
The collaboration came about through conversations between our UK Partner, Nordiclife and one of the DofE patrons, Martin Lovegrove.
Martin’s passion for getting kids outdoors and giving them a wonderful experience, lead him to fund the trip and bring along some of the Gold award ambassadors in addition.
Lacking experience of operating in the cold, snowbound conditions of winter in Norway, the team was both excited and terrified — perfect ingredients for a great time!
The 4 days was a resounding success for all, and we at ATE are looking forward to collaborating on projects with the DofE in the very near future.
