The Daily Express interviewed a few of the guys this weekend. You can click the link below to find out a little more about who we are, what we're doing and why. Both Will and Henry Adams spoke to Catherine Boyle, here's Will explaining how it all began:

"I thought that I needed to do it now while I am young enough to still be able to. I started looking back at my own heritage and of course the story is a very familiar one to me. I approached Alexandra Shackleton, Sir Ernest's granddaughter, and she thought it was a great idea. Things spiralled from there and she put me in touch with other family members."

Henry Adams admits that his wife Ali thought that he was crazy yet "I also want to be an example to my daughter and show her that you don't always have to follow a linear path, anything is achieveable."
