Businessman turned adventurer Geoff Major is embarking on an extraordinary expedition – braving polar bears, thin ice and temperatures of -35°C on his way to the North Pole. All this to raise £100,000 for charity. Here are the 4 facts you need to know about his trek to the North Pole. And you can follow Geoff’s ‘North Pole Trek’ on ‘Twitter’ @northpoletrek & on his ‘Blog’.
1. Geoff will be part of a group of up to 8 individuals all trying to raise money for charities of their choice. There will be a professional trek lead to manage us all and he’ll have a flare gun to scare polar bears away with.
