Franke Sissons support young local explorer

Calum Goodwin, 17 years old, has successfully secured financial support from philanthropic Franke Sissons for a scientific expedition to unexplored East Greenland. Calum who is currently in the Lower Sixth, Shirley House at Worksop College was selected as one of just ten pupils to be considered for the four-week trip of a lifetime to take part in early July 2015.

Calum and his expedition associates will be flying on the UK’s last remaining WW11 Catalina Sea Plane from the UK to a totally unexplored part of Greenland, stopping in the Scottish highlands, Iceland and finally Ittoggortoormitt in Greenland. The expedition will comprise, hiking mountaineering as well as undertaking scientific research for British Universities and Institutions.

Calum explains “It’s wonderful to be granted this bursary as my kit, which I tested out in the Lake District in late December 14, proved to be wholly inadequate. Temperatures in Greenland will rarely exceed -5 oc, so I will use this contribution to upgrading it.”

Andrew Dukelow, Managing Director for Franke Sissons, Carrwood Rd, Chesterfield said “Calum is a terrific young man with a huge determination. We couldn’t fail to be impressed by his drive and enthusiasm and are delighted to help in this small way. We all wish him the very best on the trip and look forward to a presentation of his experiences on his return.”
