    Hi Sarah, my name is Christina, I work at Stamford School. I look after the registers for Mr Brown. I know Matthew and I often speak to him about you: he is so proud of you and speaks so warmly about you so I felt I ought to inform myself about your expedition so I can sound a little knowledgeable when he tells me about your progress!
    So.. I know in a short while you will depart and I will be keeping an eye on news. As a mum, I feel for your family who must be terrified for your safely as you embark, but I guess you are well prepared and well equipped and (probably) know what you are doing! It will not hurt for me to add to the list of well wishers leaving their hopes and prayers for a safe journey, so here are mine: good luck, God Speed, eat well, dont forget to pause and enjoy the view from time to time! Regards, Christina.

  16. Charlotte Clarke says:

    All the best Sarah! You’re doing a remarkable and brave thing, and I am absolutely in awe at your sheer determination and courage. I will be following your progress and wishing you the very best of good luck and fortune. You’re a star – all the best 😀
