Not to mention the plethora of wildlife - from whales, seals and a huge variety of seabirds to vast penguin colonies.We are both honoured and excited to announce that Campbell Remess AKA Bumble and his chaperone will be joining us on this journey as our very special guests. This kid is making history with his kindness, making teddy bears every day and gifting them to sick and needy children across the globe. We think that what he does is so amazing we decided he deserved a trip to the end of the earth and everyone on this trip will be fortunate to meet this amazing young man. Though we have suggested he should just use this to take a break, Bumble has insisted he will take a sewing machine and create the worlds first "Made in Antarctica by Bumble" teddy bear range that he will then use to gift further or auction to raise funds for his Kindness Cruise project.
