Good Luck to @204Field who are about to embark on expedition FINN SWIFT SINGLETRACK 2019, a mountain biking expedition in Sierra Nevada Mountains, Spain - supported by The Ulysses Trust. Best of Luck! Please keep us posted!

Without our supporters and donors we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. A big thank you to The MacRobert Trust for their generosity which has helped us make 2018 one of the best years in the Trust's history. Find out more in our latest Annual Review at: https://t.co/UR1ej1Ro0X

Some great people from @edelmanUK helping @UlyssesTrust to improve our social media output during the #EdelmanChallengeDay organised by @Media_Trust Very many thanks. It’s been a productive day and really enjoyable too!

Plenty of the expeditions we support take place here in the UK and not always for large groups. We funded 3 young people from Leicester Sea Cadets to take part in a rowing exercise for Ex: TS TIGER Bronze Qualifying Ex. 2019. Read the full report at: https://t.co/Wx13DLtvsn

It’s a beautiful morning! We are feeling excited and energised on the London train for today’s #EdelmanChallengeDay @Media_Trust but I’ve left the laptop charger at home D’oh! #firstchallengeoftheday

Looking forward to tomorrow to take part in the #EdelmanCharityDay to improve our social media output. Exciting stuff!

Around a third of the expeditions we support take place here in the UK, where there are plenty of challengest. Ex: Northern Jacobite Venturer 2019 saw 20 Cadets from Giggleswick School CCF endure the elements in Lochaber, Scotland recently. More at: https://t.co/4EKW0kifnG

  • Focusing on the friction today with @martin_kinguide at #cornodimachaby and the beautiful moves of #buccedarancia 
A real pleasure to introduce my dolomiti friend to some Val d’Aosta specials... this 5c classic requires good thoughtful footwork but at the grade is enjoyable and absorbing.

  • Sunday morning solitude on the sound of silence 5c+ at Surtana, Sardinia...
😍 Last day of three with my new climbing buddy. Now I have to pack my car and head for the ferry... this time leaving this incredible island feels even more difficult... 😔 But my heart knows I’ll be back.. #surtana #soundofsilence #sardinia #wildclimbs #rockclimbing #rockclimbingsardinia #solidrock #multipitch #bestweekend #amazingadventures #actionpacked #incrediblerock
  • Exploring new places with new people... isola Tavolara and Via Ferrata degli Angeli today... windswept, wild and wonderful. Our own private mountain on our own private island... 😍
