"From the outset of the expedition’s planning, we were keen to ensure that all expedition costs were taken care of before we started raising money for SPARKS. We are delighted to be able to say that this is the case and so every single penny raised in support of the Ice Cold Challenge expedition will go to SPARKS, meaningfully helping children’s medical research. The easiest way to donate is through our justgiving webpage,

This really is a great charity that aims to give every child the chance to be born healthy and stay healthy. Every contribution, large or small will make a difference and so please give what you can. Thank you all heartily for your support."
