On Monday 12th October our Cold Equipment Team Leader, Steve Holland did  the morning assembly at Kimbolton Prep School. The week before, Mr Hall, one of the staff, had been using The Coldest Journey website to discuss leadership when Lucy, one of the pupils said: “That’s my uncle!”

A few emails and calls later and Steve was stood in front of 300 small faces discussing the serious planning behind amazing adventures. He worked through the importance of having a good idea, picking the right people, getting the best equipment, skills training and most importantly deciding that you can and will do it.Year 6 pupil and ‘volunteer’ Katherine Watson was dressed up in some of the expedition clothing much to the amusement of her friends and staff.
