Haydale are proud to have sponsored Peter Bowker an amputee from the recent conflict in Afghanistan and the five other members of the team at '65 Degrees North' in their successful attempt to cross the Greenland Ice Cap.

Ray Gibbs, CEO at Haydale, commented:

As a Wales based business we are very proud to have been involved in this all Welsh attempt which has raised funds in support of Help for Heroes. The defence industry is just one area where our technology can, and will, make a difference. It was only right that we provided some help both financially and technically. Peter is a truly inspirational character and congratulate him and his team on their successful mission.

Rich Morgan, Project manager 65 Degrees North commented:

The support offered by Haydale was instrumental in allowing Peter and the team to achieve this world record. We would like to thank Ray and Haydale for the support throughout the challenge.
