Henry Smith to climb Mount Vinson for The Wickers


Our founder, Henry Smith, is preparing to travel to Antarctica to climb the continent’s highest peak.

Fundraising for The Wickers, Henry will brave Mount Vinson for ten days, ascending 5,000 metres in minus 40-degree temperatures to raise money for young people in East London. 

Starting his journey on January 6th, Henry is on a mission to raise as much money as possible to expand programmes for The Wickers’ hub in Hackney Wick. To support Henry on this challenge of a lifetime, please donate here or here.
