Southport Hesketh Round Table last year had Help for Heroes as their main charity.  All of the monies that were raised from the Firework and Bonfire went to the charity as did  the money from other charity events.

Part of the fund raising was to support the Merseyside Help for Heroes team in their Arctic Challenge and help raise a target of £25k for H4H

Dave Snape, Chariman said: “we are proud to be associated with Help for Heroes, the work the charity does is fantastic and if we can help in any way we will go the extra mile”

“The challenge is called the ‘Arctic Heroes Challenge’ and will take place in March 2013. It involves driving from the UK and crossing the Arctic Circle at 66 33’ 39” N in the northern region of Norway and pushing further north to reach Nordkapp (North Cape). This final destination is Europe’s northernmost point on land at 71 01’08”N leaving only the Svalbard Islands to separate us from the Polar Ice Cap in the Arctic Ocean and the North Pole itself.

The challenge will take place at the most treacherous time of the year when temperatures are normally averaging minus 20deg Celsius. If that was hard enough we plan to wild camp on route as we make our way to the northern tip of Europe. We believe this challenge embraces the true spirit of true British adventure and will directly benefit real Heroes.”
