We were very pleased that the Walking With the Wounded South Pole 2013 Challenge took our Dorset Flapjacks with them to the South Pole as part of their expedition food.
Three teams of wounded servicemen and women embarked upon on one of the most high profile expeditions of modern times, racing across 3° to the Geographic South Pole. Wounded from the UK, the US and the Commonwealth (Australia and Canada) were all part of this gruelling challenge.
Prince Harry was the patron of the event and he completed the Walk along with all the other participants. We hope that you enjoyed your Dorset Flapjacks your Highness!
Dorset Flapjacks supported the teams as they undertook extensive training, from cold weather training in Iceland in March, to team training through the summer, and a final session of snow preparation in October. We are pleased to say that they reached the South Pole ahead of schedule on 13th December 2013.
The objective was to show the world the extraordinary courage and determination of the men and women who have been wounded while serving our countries, and to remind us all of the help and support we owe them.
