Fundraise to help preserve our Antarctic Heritage

Throughout our history we have benefitted from the energy and enthusiasm of people like you dedicated to raising funds to support our work. Whether it has been auctions or expeditions, cake sales or cruises, the contributions you have provided through your fundraising efforts have enabled us to conserve our Antarctic heritage both in Antarctica and in the UK.

If you have ideas for fundraising events or you want us to benefit from fundraising you’re doing then we want to hear from you. We can give you all the support and help you need to get underway. We have partnered with VirginMoneyGiving and TotalGiving to make online fundraising easier.

See below to see who has fundraised for the Trust. 


Ed Suttie is going back to his polar roots, when he worked as a glaciologist for the British Antarctic Survey, by trekking 150km to the North Pole in April 2016. Ed has chosen UKAHT as one of the charities he will be supporting through his fundraising efforts.

Our mission

We exist to preserve, enhance and promote British Antarctic heritage to engage, inform and inspire a global audience.

We actively manage the physical heritage of human endeavour in Antarctica through a sustainable conservation programme and use the stories they hold to inspire people to discover, enjoy and respect our Antarctic history.

Grants & Public Programme


Fundraising can be one of the most fun ways to help us conserve our Antarctic heritage. Any money you raise will be used to preserve our historic sites and artefacts and use their stories to inspire current and future generations with our Antarctic story. 

Contact us if you have a fundraising idea and you are as passionate about Antarctica as we are.
