Karpet Mills Director, Conrad Dickinson, said "It's great that we can get behind an amazing local organisation like the Durham Wildlife Trust, as well as continuing to support Northumberland Wildlife Trust.

Marking the dawn of a new era for the Great British countryside, the team behind Northumberland's planned £10.5million Landscape Discovery Centre, this week launched a £3.7million fundraising campaign, backed by polar explorer, Conrad Dickinson.
In order to make the vision for the new national flagship Landscape Discovery Centre and YHA Youth Hostel, a reality, the team from Northumberland National Park Authority and YHA (England and Wales) launched the effort to encourage investors and sponsors to pledge their support for this once-in-a-generation opportunity. If successful, the initiative will see the transformation of the current 1960s Once Brewed National Park centre into an iconic destination of international significance, and gateway to the stunning landscape of Northumberland and North East England. Coming together at the awe-inspiring Steel Rigg site in Northumberland, the project team were joined by explorer, Conrad Dickinson, and representatives from the community, to unveil their fundraising 'totaliser' which will become a feature of the current site as the campaign gathers pace. Conrad Dickinson, has lived in Northumberland all his life, and shares a passion for the outdoors, heightened by his many adventures including becoming the first and only Briton to have achieved the 'Polar Grand Slam', the completion of the world's three hardest polar expeditions. As a Patron and Ambassador for British Exploring, he is passionate about giving young people every opportunity to stretch their horizons and believes The Sill project could greatly assist as a springboard for young people to engage in outdoor activities within the National Park. Speaking about the project and its importance, Conrad said: "The Sill will become an emblematic location which will engage a wide selection of the population, encouraging them to explore the beauty of Northumberland National Park and transform how they engage with, experience and learn about landscapes and conservation. I particularly hope it stimulates young people to expand their horizons and engage in the wide variety of outdoor activities within the National Park. An opportunity like this only comes around once-in-a-generation and I support the project and its exciting ambitions 100 per cent. It is really important that people get behind The Sill, to help raise the vital funds needed to make it a reality." Conrad Dickinson & Tony Gates

At the end of November, Conrad Dickinson, Northumberland Wildlife Trust Patron and People's Postcode Lottery Ambassador, took part in the Walking for the Wounded 2013 South Pole Challenge.
This involved heading to the South Pole with Prince Harry and a team of formerly wounded soldiers to raise funds to train those who have been wounded in the Military and increase their job prospects. Conrad, who lives in Hexham, led the British team, Team Glenfiddich. At the bottom of his rucksack were a Wildlife Trust flag and a People's Postcode Lottery flag.

I had planned to leave as early as possible because the following morning Simon and I were to travel to Newcastle-Upon-Tyne to go through our kit list with the British explorer and adventurer, Conrad Dickinson.
Our flight was at 6:30 am and that meant me getting a 3:00 am bus to Dublin airport. But as usual, my ability to go home and potentially miss some quality banter meant that I only got 30 minutes sleep before racing for the bus. Conrad is a former army officer and successful businessman, who has faced some of the toughest physical challenges known to man. He is the first ever Briton to complete the Polar Grand Slam - crossing Greenland and trekking to the North and South Poles. Conrad also runs the family business, acts as an advisor to the Armed Forces and gives talks, lectures and workshops to raise funds for charity. Luckily for us he was prepared to spend a full day with Simon and I going through our kit list and helping us to make final decisions on sock/boot/gator/binding systems, liner/mitt/glove/outer systems, face mask/balaclava/buff/hat/goggle/sun glasses systems and those were only the feet, hands and faces organised! That still left medical kits, repair kits, rope systems for pulling the pulks (sledges), food options, cooking options, ski technique, layering system and so on. So, thanks to Conrad, this week we've taken the uncertainty out of our kit gathering by simply taking some decisions.
