Bedchester’s Pen Hadow is the only person to trek solo without resupply from Canada to the geographic North Pole.
Time magazine declared Pen ‘a hero of the environment’, and he’s determined to gain United Nations protection for the wildlife and ecosystems in international waters surrounding the North Pole.
On Saturday at 6pm, Pen will be speaking at Donhead St Andrew Church about his work. The event will raise cash for the south aisle church roof. Tickets cost £10 on the door, or you can book on 01747 828395.
