It’s been some time since we released any London2Sydney news, so you’d be forgiven for wondering what’s been happening at London2Sydney headquarters recently. Allow me to bring you up to date.
With no change in Nick’s situation following our announcement that the expedition had been temporarily postponed, it’s time to take a fresh look at the expedition and set a new course for the future. After all, there’s a 1977 VW camper van just itching to drive to Sydney and it’s not going to get there on its own!
Needless to say, my own enthusiasm and commitment to the expedition is undimmed, and with so much hard work already having been done, there’s no way the expedition is going to be allowed to lie fallow. All that is required is for a group of dedicated people to come together and take the project on to a successful conclusion.
So I’m currently working on the slow and careful task of assembling a new expedition team. Once the team has been formed, we’ll be able to begin building on the excellent foundations already laid and working towards our twin goals of a successful overland expedition to Australia and raising money for our chosen charity Cancer Research UK.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors for their continued support and understanding, everyone who’s given so generously to Cancer Research UK, and all the people who’ve been behind us every step of the way.
I look forward to announcing a new team and new departure date sometime in the not-too-distant future. Thank you all once again for all your support. Stay tuned for more news!
