Race to the Pole

Did anybody see Henry Worsley abseiling down the side of the Lloyds building to highlight his upcoming expedition to the South Pole? It was quite a sight in the middle of the City!

Lt Col Henry Worsley MBE, a British Army officer, polar adventurer and author, will lead a modern-day recreation of Capt Robert Falcon Scott and Roald Amundsen’s 1911/12 race to the South Pole in November 2011.

The expedition, the most authentic ever recreation of Capt Scott and Amundsen’s race, aims to raise £500,000 for The Royal British Legion's important work in support of the Battle Back Centre and four Personnel Recovery Centres for injured Service personnel.

You can follow Henry on Twitter (http://twitter.com/Race_tothe_Pole); he’s keeping it updated in the run up to the expedition, and throughout the Race to the Pole.

More information can be found on the expedition website (The Scott-Amundsen Centenary Race 2011), and you can sponsor Henry on his Just Giving page (Henry Worsley is fundraising for The Royal British Legion).
