Some of the people we supported

We are very proud to have given 43 grants to support young people to go on life changing adventures all over the World in 2018. We hope these exploits will help develop and shape them and they will be able to use their experiences and new skills to take on future challenges.

Tom, 28, from Gloucestershire

We are proud to have support Tom on his expedition to the Himalayas, trekking and mountain biking to the village of Ralakung in Zanskar, Ladakh. The aim was to install a solar micro-grid to improve education access, reduce the use of kerosene and provide a clean source of electricity for the remote village.


In 2018 we were pleased to support a number of young people fundraising for a place on a British Exploring Society expedition to Iceland and follow their progress and challenges they faced in the land of fire and ice!

My expedition… taught me how to be independent, resilient and confident in myself...
I cannot thank enough the generosity of the Get Exploring Trust.. As they have truly changed my life

14 members of 359 (Bexleyheath) Squadron

We happily supported 4 staff members and 10 cadets from Bexleyheath, Welling, Swanley, Battle and Kensington Squadron on their epic Malawi expedition in October 2018 as part of the RAF100 celebration events.

‘The impact the expedition has had on the squadron starts at the personal development and skills achieved by the Cadets as part of the pre-expedition training and once in a life time experience that these fine Cadets got.
— Flying Officer Mark Sullivan, Officer Commanding 359 (Bexleyheath) Squadron
