  1. Hi guys, the admins have kindly let me share the following info with you about a daring mission the Bear Gryll's and is intrepid team have embarked on through the Northwest Passage in order to raise funds for UK charity Global Angels. The charity provides the world's most disadvantaged and vulnerable children with innovative sustainable solutions in their communities, helping them adapt to and develop within their changing climate. All funds from this particular mission are going towards providing safe drinking water for third world communities.

    Hope you enjoy reading the about the mission, and if you can donate to a very worthy cause that would be fantastic!

    Bear Grylls & The Northwest Passage Expedition

    Bear Grylls and his team of adventurers have embarked on their new expedition, which will raise awareness for climate change, and raise money to provide safe water for kids.

    The Team departed on 28th August on a 14 day trip through the formerly frozen Northwest Passage to raise awareness of the effects of Global Warming and to raise money for UK Charity Global Angels.

    The crew christened their custom made Zodiac RIB boat ‘Arctic Wolf’. Their new vessel will take them on their journey through the passage between the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. In clear water, the Zodiac can reach speeds of up to 40 knots, but the team expect to travel at between speeds of 18 – 38 knots, as they try to avoid the ice strewn across the Northwest Passage. From start of the expedition to the finish, the team will cover 5700 nautical miles.

    Crew member and founder and CEO of Future Capital Partners Tim Levy says: “Businesses can and should do more to look at slowing down the effects of global warming, which is why we are backing this trip and Global Angels.” Future Capital Partners is currently building a commercial scale bio-ethanol plant in Grimsby to help lower the carbon footprint of British motorists.
