Social worker takes on sub-zero Arctic challenge for charity

Arctic2.jpgHats off to Paul Cawley, a social worker at Cheshire East Council, who is about to take part in a gruelling 350 mile race across the Arctic to raise money for two charities. The Northwich Guardian has an interview with Paul here, where he explains what awaits him – including temperatures of minus 40 degrees - when he takes on the 6633 Ultra Challenge next week.

Good luck Paul! I’ll definitely stop complaining that the weather here at our offices is freezing now that I’ve seen what lies in store in the Arctic circle.
