Flag firm supports South Pole skier’s charity race

 

The Hampshire Flag @ The South Pole

South Pole

A selection of flags was donated to one man’s adventurous expedition to the South
Pole which raised more than £15,000 for charity. Matt Elliott took part in ‘The Extreme  World Races Centenary Race to the South Pole’ – one of the toughest races in the world and took 12 flags with him, provided by Hampshire Flag, to raise money for The Royal British Legion and The Alzheimer’s Society.

Each custom flag was manufactured from a lightweight knitted polyester and printed with the branding of the different businesses which supported Matt’s 40 day expedition to Antarctica during which him skied more than 700km – 100 years after Norwegian explorer Amundsen beat Sir Robert Falcon Scott in their epic duel to the South Pole.
