During today’s update, Richard passed the phone to Prince Harry explained that some of the team members had already experienced a hiccup, as two of the sledges containing vital supplies had fallen off a vehicle on the way to their Airbase and needed to be recovered. Prince Harry was in good spirits, joking that “it’s all sunny and lots of snow. No doubt, the same at home!”
Celador Radio’s Creative Director, Richard Johnson said “We’re delighted to support such a worthy cause. To be able to share such an amazing courageous story with our listeners is honour enough, but to have HRH Prince Harry as a roving reporter is the icing on the cake”.
The full transcript of the phone conversation with HRH Prince Harry is below:
“Hello listeners of The Breeze, Harry here. Thanks to the old Walking With The Wounded, I don’t know what I’ve got myself in for!
We are currently in Novo, where it’s nice and sunny. It’s a wonderful charity, as no doubt you’ll all know and you’re all following the trip very closely.
We’re leaving tonight, which is really fantastic, the team is being split in half – I’m on the first flight tonight, some tomorrow.
Guy and Ibi have lost their Pulks (sledges) with all their food and everything they possibly need for the next three weeks, however, these should be picked up by the vehicles following them behind.
Anyway, we’re out here. It’s all sunny and lots of snow. No doubt, the same at home, but yeah, sending you all the best at home and keep following us as much as you can.
