Wings Around the World II - Voyage to the Ice
6th May 2003 to 27th
Polly and the 'Wings Around the World' team are so grateful to all the sponsors for their tremendous support for the last round the world flight 'Voyage to the Ice'. Without their help the flight would not have been possible. It is due to their magnificent support that we were able to raise £320,000 for 'Flying Scholarships for the Disabled'
Fly over the Poles with Polly, for a donation of £25 to the charity was another way to attract sponsorship funding for FSD. Names of all individuals, clubs, schools and societies that accepted this unique and charitable offer was affixed to the wing of the aircraft.
On the voyage we had 1,400 names on the wings. Many, many people all over the world have generously given Polly of their hospitality, time, friendship and support. It would be impossible to name them all, but the team are truly grateful for all their wonderful help throughout the project.
