Get well soon Lydia

By Cape Farewell // Thursday 6 Sep // 17:35:38 // View

Earlier this week we had some sad news that Lydia, one of the students joining the voyage from Germany was not able to go to the Arctic due to illness. Katharina will be going to the Arctic on behalf of Lydia and her school.

The whole Cape Farewell team are wishing you a speedy recovery Lydia. We’re sorry you couldn’t make it to the Arctic, but your involvement so far has been fantastic and I’m sure you’re going to carry on doing great things for your school and climate change.

get well soon
