A team making a record-breaking attempt to cross Antarctica during the winter are taking Tork products along with them. The Coldest Journey expedition, headed up by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, will be the subject of a Channel Five documentary. Besides earning a place in the Guinness World Records and helping to gather valuable data, the venture will also raise millions of pounds for charity.
The team is taking supplies of Tork Liquid Soap and Tork Premium Hand Sanitiser Alcohol Gel plus dispensers on the journey along with 180 rolls of Tork Conventional Toilet Paper.
“We are delighted that the Coldest Journey team has decided to use Tork products,” said SCA UK and Ireland communications director, Sarah Wilson. “It shows real confidence in the quality and convenience of Tork hygiene systems, and we wish the team every success in their venture.”
The main objective of the expedition is to achieve the first ever winter crossing of the Antarctic. Those taking part in the current attempt will also carry out various scientific tasks to provide data on glaciology, marine life, oceanography and meteorology. A key goal of The Coldest Journey team is to raise USD10 million for Seeing is Believing, a global initiative to tackle avoidable blindness in developing countries. The Coldest Journey’s lead sponsor, Standard Chartered, will match all donations made to the charity.
