Yippee! Timberland Expedition

Yippee! is a social group of young people with an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) based in West Kent. In September 2005, Felicity led a team including 4 Yippee! members on an adventurous expedition to Iceland. The team overcame mobility problems, chronic fatigue and a wide range of 'hidden-disabilities' to hike across lava fields, camp in the wild, bathe in natural geothermal pools and go ice-climbing on a glacier. The expedition allowed young people with ABI to discover and explore the outdoors for themselves, returning home with a new view of the World around them and of their own capabilities. The expedition was made possible thanks to a Timberland Scholarship and the loan of two Land Rover Defenders from The Gordon Foundation.
