Polly Murray: Antarctica, Everest and Beyond
At 26, Polly Murray became the first Scottish woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Three years earlier, she was the first person to Telemark ski off the summit of Mount McKinley. She has explored the heart of the Amazon rainforest and skied across remote Arctic islands; as well as taking part in major Antarctic and Arctic sailing expeditions. A truly inspirational speaker, whose stories are matched by her photographic skills.
All proceeds will go the Jo Walters Trust.
