The Women’s Adventure Grant is a truly wonderful idea and I’m sure it will make a lot of difference to women embarking on great missions.

I found it very difficult to get brands and adventure retailers to take me seriously and therefore all my equipment was bought with only the odd membership discount here and there. They were very uninterested and I guess a mirror of society - they get used to a certain “look” I guess.

To be honest, though, that drove me! I just knew I had to push myself and strive harder. It made me realise how passionate I was about my cause.

However, when there is SO much to organise, financial help could be the difference between whether someone gets their dream off the ground or not, so I truly wish you all the very best in your quest to make this happen!
