In 2014 a former soldier, who lost his leg while serving in Afghanistan, set out to achieve his dream of becoming the world’s first amputee to cross the Greenland ice cap, unsupported.
A group of dedicated and inspirational individuals assembled to help him realise this ambition.
This phenomenal team became 65 Degrees North.
By challenging common misconceptions of physical and mental disability, 65 Degrees North aims to inspire and motivate wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans to overcome their personal challenges and achieve their dreams through the spirit of adventure.
At Thomas Slim, we have followed the 65 Degrees North journey with interest and admire their work enormously.
We are therefore incredibly proud to partner with them on this collection of beautiful accessories. Please browse the 65 Degrees North Gift Collection below.
A percentage of the sale from each of the products in their collection will be donated to the charity, helping them to raise funds to support more people to overcome adversity and achieve their dreams.
