The Antarctic Quest 21 expedition team are hugely excited to announce that we have smashed through the 25% threshold for our crowdfunded campaign to enable our expedition to go ahead and to help allow us to deliver our educational outreach and legacy programmes.
This amazing news is thanks to the NAAFI (Navy, Army, Air Force Institute), who have made a major contribution to our expedition, which we are extremely grateful for. This donation comes in a significant year for the NAAFI and one that is linked to our own 100th anniversary of Shackleton’s Quest Expedition, as it is the 100th Anniversary of the NAAFI’s creation and we appreciate to have them as partners to our Quest expedition.
Having obtained this first funding goal, we are hopeful that Plymouth Community Change Fund will look favourably on our application for match-funding. This is a great step forward for our crowdfunding campaign.
We encourage everyone who sees the immense value our expedition brings to climate science and pollution research, to help us achieve our target, so we can retain the donations we have had pledged so far: every donation is a step towards that target, irrespective of how large or how small!
Thanks from all the Antarctic Quest 21 Team to all our supporters!
