Help us save Hillary's hut!

The Trust has just completed Expedition South, driving vintage Ferguson tractors from Piha to Mount Cook to raise funds to save Sir Ed's Antarctic legacy - his TAE hut and the artefacts inside. Work has now started on the hut after a successful public fundraising campaign and recently announced support from the New Zealand Government.
