Polar Challenge Launch
4 October 2017
We are excited to announce that Ben Saunders, a world-renowned polar explorer, is holding his last public engagement at Stowe - just days before he takes on the last remaining challenge in Antarctic exploration: an unassisted and unsupported solo crossing of the Antarctic land-mass. Join us for a dinner and presentation on Friday 20 October from 6.30pm. Ben Saunders holds several polar endurance records and it is both poignant and fitting that Stowe will host his final public engagement before he attempts to complete Henry Worsley’s Antarctic expedition. Ben came to Stowe in January 2017 for the opening of the Worsley Science Centre and paid tribute to his friend, Henry Worsley (Grafton 78), in whose honour the Science Centre is named. Henry died in January 2016, just 30 miles from completing this historic expedition. The evening promises to be an enthralling occasion and all proceeds raised will go to the Endeavour Fund which was Henry’s chosen cause.
