MP's from the Westminster ChallengeNick Clegg with Raider Westminster Challenge

 

Our dogs were used for promotional photographs for the Westminster Challenge which took place in February 2007 as a cross party team of Members of the House of Commons including Nick Clegg took on the Arctic. Travelling in excess of 400 kilometers by sleddog teams in the Arctic Circle, these teams will faced temperatures as low as -40 and had to undertake a number of tasks along the way, including ice fishing and igloo building. The three principal charities to be supported by the inaugural challenge are Cancer Research UK, The Children's Society and Crimestoppers. In addition, each MP will nominate a local charity to benefit from the fundraising work of The Westminster Challenge.
