Ain’t no mountain high enough

We’ve been known to undertake a challenge or two here at Hampshire Flag; the MD’s trekked to Everest Base Camp and our Print Room Manager’s cycled from Land’s End to John o’ Groats.   But when Michael Parker got in touch and said that he and his friend Kenny Parkes were climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in memory of their friend Nadine Blake, who died from cystic fybrosis when she was 18, we doffed our caps and happily fulfilled their request for a bespoke flag to take on the climb.

Their aim was to raise £10,000 for Southampton General Hospital’s cystic fybrosis unit but, incredibly, the current total stands at more than £13,000 – what an achievement!

Michael and Kenny successfully scaled Africa’s highest mountain and when they reached the top, they unfurled the pink flag and flew it in Nadine’s memory.

The money they’ve raised will be used to build a garden for the patients on the cystic fibrosis unit and for equipment.

Well done lads – we hope you’re putting your feet up now!

Hampshire flags fly at international games

Our flags enjoy a jet-setting lifestyle and are often packed and sent off to undertake glamorous and high profile missions.

And true to form, when we received an order for over 60 large national flags they were to star in the world’s third largest international multi-sport event – the 2013 World Police and Fire Games (WPFG).

The biennial sporting event, which took place in Belfast, is for serving and retired police, fire, prison and border security officers and featured 56 sports with almost 7,000 competitors.

Our 1 yard flags were also in demand as we supplied one from every competing nation, all 67 of them, which WPFG stitched together to create one giant flag – no mean feat!

What a great event for bringing together service people from around the world, for celebrating the great work they do and for seeing our flags take centre stage!

We wish you a merry Christmas…

With the festive season now in full swing it seems the perfect time to say a big thank you to all our customers for your support throughout this year.

Warming up for Antarctic challenge

Our flags not only get to clock up some miles but they often help raise awareness of some great causes – and our most recently donated flags and banners are no exception.

The Coldest Journey is the first ever attempt to cross the Antarctic continent during the polar winter whilst raising money for Seeing is Believing, a charitable initiative that raises money to prevent and treat avoidable blindness.

So we’ve provided 12 flags including five Commonwealth flags, one Union flag and six custom flags featuring The Coldest Journey logo, 12 lengths of bunting – PVC and knitted polyester featuring the Seeing is Believing logo, two banners including a mammoth 15m banner with The Coldest Journey logo on it twice… with some banner frames and flag poles to boot!

Led by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the expedition will start on 6 December 2012 when expedition members and equipment will sail to Antarctica from the Thames to the Lazarev Sea coast in Antarctica.

The traverse will take place between the two seasonal equinoxes, 21 March 2013 – 21 September 2013, with the ice team travelling from Novolazarevskaya (Novo) to the Ross Sea in the Antarctic winter. During this six month period the expedition team will have travelled 2,000 miles, mostly in complete darkness in temperatures close to minus 90C.

Throughout the traverse, the expedition team on the ice and the ship will undertake a number of scientific tasks to provide unique data on glaciology, marine life, oceanography and meteorology.

We wish all The Coldest Journey team the very best for their amazing (and very chilly!) fundraising feat.
