Jake Thomson (MC 00-09) was recently amongst the only British team in 2014 to complete a trek to the North Pole. Jake, who is dating fellow OR Hannah Bennet, asked his future father-in-law for Hannah’s hand in marriage. There was only one condition – that Jake joined him on a trek to the North Pole to raise funds for the Colourful Life Foundation. So far, Jake’s efforts have raised over £27,000 and already benefitting children living in Arusha, Tanzania.
We were delighted to welcome Jake back to Rossall to talk to students about his trek to the North Pole.
