8848 – BADGES

The Expedition 8848 badges have arrived. I will be using 10 of the 50 ordered for my clothing and equipment – the other 40 will still go on expedition with me and will be carried to the summit of Everest in 2019. When I get back I intend to run a competition to win the badges along with signed photographs from the trip for all the schools / Scouts who have signed up for the journey.

So keep following and let me know hat you think of the badges. http://www.expedition8848.com

  1. Hi, would you be interested in making more of these badges and selling them to raise funds? I bet the Scouts following your adventure would be interested in some 🙂


    1. Hi Joanna, It’s a good idea but I only have about 40 spare so it won’t make a great deal of money – I would prefer to give them out as prizes really – along with a signed photo of me holding them on Everest. Suggestions on a completion would be welcome though – if you have ideas. Thank you so much for contacting me / Mark

  2. Mark – The badge is very nicely done… eye-catching, yet understated. Color and images capture the cold of Everest. The badge would look great in any school’s trophy case.

    All the best going forward.
