Laura Bingham is a woman of many talents, adventurer, speaker and full time mum. Her journey started out in 2014 when she decided to attempt to cross the Atlantic Ocean with no experience whatsoever in sailing. Alongside two other crew members, it took them two whole months, encountering a near deadly storm in the process.
"Laura is passionate about inspiring others through her adventures."Add to my shortlist
Two years after crossing the Atlantic, Laura took on the mammoth challenge of crossing South America without any money, all in aid of Operation South America, a charity for homeless and abused young girls in Paraguay. Living off scraps and relying on human kindness, it was an eye opening challenge for Laura, who is passionate about sustainability herself, and one of which she had never undertaken before. In 2018, Laura organised and led the world first descent of the Essequibo River in Guyana, before paddling the entire river from its source to the Atlantic Ocean. As a quirky and fearless adventurer, Laura's exploits have earned her recognition from pioneers of the adventure world, including Ranulph Fiennes amongst others.
