Hello and Welcome from Henry Evans the ISCE penguin
Thank's guys for visiting my fundraising page.
Donating through this page is simple, quick and secure.
I am a graduate marine biology student from the University of Plymouth and after a Daily Telegraph sponsored national selection process, I am the selected candidate for the International Scott Centenary Expedition. The charity is promoting the legacy of Captain Scott and I will be part of an expedition to Antarctica in November 2012.
I ran the Plymouth Half Marathon on the 3rd June for the ISCE with my good friend Joe Stubbs. Both of us wore full blown penguin costumes... good training I suppose! Thanks to everyone who came along to support us, it was such a boost :)
Please give generously for a great cause
On the 24th June, Pingu the penguin will be taking part in another challenge, this time the Torbay Half-Marathon
If possible, come along on the day and cheer us :) Boy am I going to need it, 13.1 miles of waddling is a long way!
Many thanks for your support

The International Scott Centenary Expedition is a dynamic project celebrating the centenary of the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913) aboard Terra Nova and the death of Captain Scott and the Pole Party in March 1912. We are undertaking an expedition to Antarctica in 2012, involving people from multiple backgrounds and ages, to visit the last tent site of Scott and his Polar Party, and in doing so to provide a clear focus for the education programme and media outreach campaign, and thereby to inspire and educate the community at large and the leaders of tomorrow.
The expedition salutes the memory of Scott and his Pole Party and celebrates their achievements, providing a powerful focus to our education and outreach programme. A century on, Scott's legacy is to be found in the modern framework of the Antarctic Treaty itself, which designates Antarctica as an international continent for science. With its educational and scientific emphases, this expedition will be supporting this ethos. We will also be supporting the work of the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, which continues the legacy of Scott's expeditions in the Polar regions to this day, ensuring a century of polar scientific work inspired by Captain Scott. Our education and outreach work, with children and engaging the community through 'Scott' themed events and workshops is already under way. You can find out more about all aspects of the expedition at our website.
