25th Anniversary Appeal

tania-noakes As part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations the Ulysses Trust has launched an appeal to raise £1.5m by the end of 2021 to significantly increase the amount of support we can give to cadet expeditions. Our ambassador, Tania Noakes, is raising funds for the appeal through her 25th Anniversary Expedition. Tania has now completed the classic Norge På Langs, or ‘Norway from end to end’. A journey of over 2,500km from the southern tip of Norway, Lindesnes to the most northerly point, Nordkapp. Please support the Ulysses Trust by making a donation via Tania’s MyDonate webpage. All monies raised will be donated to the Ulysses Trust. Click on the images below to find out how she did it.
