Date : 19th October 7.30pm
Talk : On Top of the World
Venue : Stourbridge: New Road Methodist Church Stourbridge, DY8 1PA
Details : If your image of a typical arctic explorer is of someone tall, butch, rugged and hairy, then this talk by Pollyanna will challenge your preconceived ideas! Accompanied by her daughter and business partner Anna-Louise Pollyanna, undertook the toughest of all her expeditions – a journey into the high arctic in search of polar bears.
Travelling across the frozen arctic ocean by husky dog sledge, and camping in tents and igloos, the two women endured temperatures as low as -40ºc. Although they swore never to return, this recently updated talk includes images and paintings from their second expedition, searching for migrating females and cubs.
Tickets £5 including tea and biscuits.
All proceeds will be split 50/50 between the Pollyanna Pickering Foundation, and New Road Church. To book contact Trevor Manning 01384 371864 email@example.com
“On top of the World is a fascinating account of two women’s experiences in the high arctic…. this is a very personal account given with great insight and humour.”
