Dwayne Fields hands a cheque to Nikki Michaels, Head of Community Fundraising.

Stoke Newington resident Dwayne Fields recently handed a cheque for £1,000 to Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, the result of a fundraising drive by him.  The hospice  serves an estimated 900 life threatened and life-limited children or young people, and their families, living within the communities of North London, specifically the boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington.

Fields, is the first black Briton to to walk 370 miles to reach the North Pole, a journey which he succeeded in making  in 2010.

He said:  “I am delighted to be able to hand over this cheque for £1000 to Noah’s Ark. It is a cause which is dear to my heart. I have always been impressed with the skill and kindness with which the Hospice deals with the children in its care. I lost a relative to leukaemia, so I know how important the hospice movement is in offering care and support to those suffering from the illness, as well as to their families and loved ones”.

Fields, is also a motivational speaker who speaks to young people using his adventuring experiences, to inspire and encourage them to achieve the very best.  Dwayne Fields is currently preparing for a solo walk to the South Pole in 2013, he will be speaking about his North Pole challenge and about where he draws his inspirations from, at the Telegraph Travel Show on 27th January 2013.
