Hampshire Flag donated a number of flags and banners to the fund raising expedition
The aptly named ‘The Coldest Journey’ is the first ever attempt at the challenging feat, with the team hoping to raise as much money for charity as possible.
Sir Ranulph Fiennes himself was due to take part, but was forced to pull out after suffering frostbite, but the exhibition os going ahead as planned.
Our flags not only get to clock up some miles but they often help raise awareness of some great causes and the flags and banners we donated to The Coldest Journey are no exception}”
The expedition team is aiming to raise US $10m (£6.3m) for Seeing is Believing, a charitable initiative that raises money to prevent and treat avoidable blindness. The team will endure temperatures close to minue 90°C during the six-month, 2,000-mile trek.
“Our flags not only get to clock up some miles but they often help raise awareness of some great causes and the flags and banners we donated to The Coldest Journey are no exception,” says Hampshire Flag’s managing director, Graham Wilkinson.
As well as a number of flags, the firm also produced eight lengths of PVC bunting and four lengths of knitted polyester, a PVC banner, and a giant 15m banner. Banner frames and flag poles complete the package of donated products.
