At the beginning of January Peter Lemon, a Norfolk businessman, trekked to the South Pole to raise money for charity. Peter trekked from 89 degrees south to 90 degrees and the Geographic South Pole, around 60 miles. The conditions were very unforgiving and he had much to contend with, 24 hour daylight, the constant threat of frostbite and temperatures around -30°C and with wind chill getting down to -50°C.
Although having spent three weeks camping on the ice, Pete has returned with all his fingers and toes although was missing part of his nose for a short while, we’re sure it was worth it though having raised nearly £20,000 for the Prince’s Trust. Having been Chairman for the local fundraising group of the Prince’s Trust, Peter has helped many young people who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. This could well be Pete’s last adventure after having also tackled the New York Marathon and Mount Kilimanjaro, both also to raise money for the Prince’s Trust.
Peter lives just down the road from Adrian Flux and took a Flux Flag to wave high at the pole.
