Fundraising: The things they do - Ice trick

Dr Jorn Cann was among 10 volunteer fundraisers who braved Arctic conditions in Sweden to raise money for the Exeter Leukaemia Fund.

The group learnt to dig snow holes, camped out in the cold, walked in snowshoes, fended for themselves by ice fishing and lived on food rations.

Cann, 39, works at the Haematology Centre at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, which was receiving the funds to develop new services for leukaemia sufferers, such as outreach nursing for patients. Following the success of this year's challenge, the fund is launching its Arctic Challenge 2006 in partnership with Intrepid Expeditions.
