North Pole Adventurer, Hackney’s Dwayne Fields raises funds for childrens hospice



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.

After hitching her wagon in California, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana for 18 years, with a brief spell in Mexico, the prodigal daughter returned to London, happy to put an unconventional and risqué past behind her. It sometimes feels like she’s still at war with herself. This often leads her into a whole lot of trouble, although it’s fair to blame it on some of her best qualities: intelligence, original thinking, willingness to take risks, skepticism, rebelliousness, independence, and creativity. But you know what, much of the trouble she gets into is because she can’t help pointing out that the emperor is naked. Remi still lives by her own rules, nobody else’s. She is owned by her two dogs Deffer(a Jack Russell ) Darcy (a Jack Russell/Pomeranian mix now deceased but can’t remove their names) and two Black cats she adopted December 2021, Desmond and Tutu. She is proprietor of London’s finest and long established pet sitting service. The big smoke is home for the moment, but she desperately yearns wide open spaces, where she hopes to call home in the near future.
