Car Boot Sale – Rowsley 13th June

As a part of the fundraising activities, which are an essential part of the volunteers work, the Arctic Research Group will be at the Rowsley Car Boot Sale on Sunday 13th June to enable members to bring their donated items to be sold for the benefit of the ARG. This is the first time that this method of fundraising is going to be tried and it will hopefully both raise funds and raise interest in the activities of the Arctic Research Group.

Rowsley is on the A6 in Derbyshire between Matlock and Bakewell. The postcode is DE4 2EB. The Car Boot Sale will be well signposted and if you are able to come along and either buy some of the donated items or do that and also bring donated items to be sold on the ARG tables, it would be good to see you there. The Car Boot Sale opens from 07:00

Safe water support

Rotary Club of Wirksworth have been very generous in providing the expedition with an Aquabox family filter unit, to clean all of the water that the expedition members will drink while in the Arctic.

The Aquabox project has saved countless lives around the world by providing safe drinking water using simple, hand operated pump/filter units. The innovative AquaFilter technology produces safe and clean drinking water instantly and reliably without the need for chemicals. The pump/filter units contain sub-micron filters which are impenetrable to bacteria and most viruses.
