Ice Warrior Partners & supporters

Sir Ranulph Fiennes

Ice Warrior Patron

During my first conversation with Jim, last century, I was impressed by his quiet confidence and solid enthusiasm. Since them I have come to learn the determination, dexterity, skills and knowledge of Jim and the crew behind the project and am delighted to be associated with them. Ice Warrior has all the potential of a truly great British First. Slightly mad and eccentric in conception, thorough and precise in planning and likely to prove ingenious and resolved in execution.
Hon Alexandra Shackleton - Granddaughter of Sir Ernest Shackleton
The terrain is exceptionally hostile and dangerous; but I am confident that Jim and his team will be successful not only in reaching the elusive pole; but in conducting an environmentally vital transect of the Arctic Ocean; for as Ernest Shackleton said “difficulties are just things to overcome".
Sir Chris Bonington
We all think that the world has been “discovered” and there are few areas that mankind has not reached. This is not so and project’s like Jim McNeill’s Ice Warrior Project serve to explore these extremes and push back the boundaries of our knowledge as well as the limits of those who take part. As an expeditioner myself I am delighted to encourage and support such worthwhile endeavour, undertaken not by experts but by trained amateurs under the careful leadership of Jim. I wish them the very best of luck.
Michael Palin
Learning to travel the hard way is not only the best way, but it’s also the most memorable. I greatly admire all of you for having a go - believe me you won’t forget the experience. Good luck.
Lord Robert Winston
What Jim McNeill and his team are doing is pioneering of the most advanced kind. Just as Cancer Research UK is genuinely pioneering new ways to treat cancer; what he is planning pushes man beyond the boundaries and will take him to the most inaccessible places on Earth.
Sir Matthew Pincent
To Jim and all the Ice Warrior Team. I know how hard training can be, but push on, you will find it is worth it!
Richard E Grant
Wishing Jim and his intrepid team all the very best of British in their quest to reach The Last Pole!
Simon Luxemore - Chief Executive, Royal Aeronautical Society
What Jim and his team has set out to achieve on ice is nothing less than extraordinary, by anyone's standards and will push the boundaries of our knowledge in this crucial region. That he intends to mirror this achievement in the air, at the same time, makes this Great British endeavour something we should all rally around and I'm delighted to wholeheartedly support him and his team.
