In the winter I applied to the Lord Mayor’s 800th Anniversary Awards Trust for a grant towards my expedition. As well as an application form, I had to do some research into the role of the Lord Mayor and the Corporation of the City of London and complete a questionnaire about the Mayoralty of the City of London, which I found interesting. I have just heard that I have been selected to receive an award, which I am over-the-moon about, as it puts me another step closer to my goal.
