working today to improve tomorrow

We are looking for corporate sponsorship to enable the crossing to happen.

Crucially, the boat is paid for: we need £50k to cover the costs of the race – the safety equipment, travel and logistics, food and insurance.  If we secure more than £50k in sponsorship, or make savings on the cost of the race, any surplus will be donated to the charities.

We are then looking to raise £250k that will be split across the three chosen charities.

Henry has worked many years in farming. It is the connections to the land and the production of food that has made him understand the essentials of sustainability.

The charities he has chosen to support through his challenge with #PollyAnne23 reflect his passions and belief that we should all be working together to improve our world.

Global Canopy

A data-driven not-for-profit that targets the market forces destroying nature.


Working together for a better system of food, farming and fishing, and cultivating the movement for change.
