The man from Head Office...he say yes!
We have a special visitor with us at the moment...all the way from Raleigh HQ. Rahim who is the Youth Partnerships
Officer for Raleigh had never seen an expedition in action, and he
wanted to find out if all of the good things he was hearing were true. Could
it be as awesome as everybody said? He is joining us for 2 weeks to
get a flavour of what it feels like to be out on expedition.
Rahim - raring to go!
"I've always been a strong believer in Raleigh's work and always knew that the expeditions were amazing but being here has opened my eyes. It's even more amazing than I thought. Words can't express how incredible it feels to be part of expedition 12L. It's such a pleasure meeting all of the venturers, VMs and staff and living an actual expedition. I'm going to be so sad to leave early and I'll be thinking of you all when I'm back in London. Pura Vida!"
As Rahim is scared of bugs, spiders and the dark we can't wait to hear how he gets on - let's wish him luck!
