Henry Smith treks to the North Pole

Aitch Group founder Henry Smith has completed an incredible expedition to the North Pole and raised £43,667 for Teens Unite Fighting Cancer.

The journey comprised of up to 10 hours of travelling a day, pulling all supplies by sledge on cross country skis.

Despite temperatures dropping to -40°c, Henry completed the expedition and in doing so raised over £43,000 for his chosen charity, Teens Unite Fighting Cancer.

Teens Unite is the only charity in the UK to provide ongoing support to 13-24 year olds fighting cancer from diagnosis through to post-remission. Seven young people are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK and Teens Unite brings them together through workshops and activities so they can spend valuable time with others their age in a similar situation to themselves. The charity helps to rebuild the confidence and self-esteem of those it supports and prevents feelings of isolation during what can be a long and lonely battle.
