Annie of the Antarctic

Update posted by Lianne Waterston On Dec 30, 2017

Hi everyone,

Thank you for your continued to support towards my campaign. I feel so lucky to have such a vast network of family, friends and colleagues that believe in me and what I am trying to achieve. I am delighted to say that I have reached 20% of my total! (£2000) thanks to all of you.

I have been emailing proposals to different companies and have my fingers crossed that one of them will see the value and get onboard.

On February 17th, I will be holding a fundraiser at Stewart's Melville rugby club in Edinburgh. The main event will be a race night along with food, drink and a raffle. Please bring your family and friends and come along if you are nearby! Any proceeds I make over my target will be donated to Forever Angels baby home in Tanzania.

It is now 59 days before I set sail to Antarctica! It's getting very real now!

Merry xmas and a Happy new Year.

With love,

Annie x

Hi everyone, I have just updated my fundraiser page to include Rewards in return for your support. If you already donated to me before these rewards were added then please go to the page and choose your reward and email your choice to me.

Only 3 months to go before I set off! Could you please share my fundraiser page on social media and by any other means you can. It is much appreciated.

Robert Swan and his son Barney started their 600 mile trek to the South Pole today. They will walk the whole way surviving on only renewable energy to raise awareness surrounding climate change. You can follow their journey from this link: http://www.2041.com/spec-tracker/

Thank you.

Today, September 10th I received a donation which takes my total up to that magic number of 10. Thank you so much to these 10 for kickstarting my fundraising and I will be sure to pass on my gratitude with a small gift from Antarctica.

My new blog has been launched so please follow along and share with friends and family. I will be updating about how everyone can get involved with making small changes towards a cleaner and better future.

I promised I’d donate on behalf of Year 4 if all the teachers joined in with the aquathlon today... and they did! Not quite the ‘Polar Plunge’ but a wee bit nippy! Think of us when you do your dip! Xxx
