A Centenary Service of Thanksgiving for the courage and endurance of Sir Ernest Shackleton CVO and his men
This Special Service in Westminster Abbey taking place on Friday 20th May 2016 at 12 Noon, marks the centenary of the 'Endurance Expedition' made by Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men.
This first attempt to make a land crossing of the Antarctic failed to accomplish its objective, but has become recognised instead as an epic feat of endurance. The courage and leadership shown by Shackleton makes him a hero who is of great relevance today.
