Joanna Lumley and the Human Swan

9th November 2021

Joanna Lumley and the Human Swan

All at Rix & Kay were saddened to hear of the loss of Dan Burton, we had supported and watched Dan & Sacha’s journey with great admiration and anticipation. Dan was an adventurer, photographer, campaigner, husband and father, who lived by the motto ‘One Life, Live It’, an inspiration to us all.

Rix & Kay supported this double world record-attempt to mark the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow. This world-first circumnavigation of mainland Britain was attempted by the ‘human swan’ in a specially adapted electric paramotor. The Round Britain Climate Challenge – a circumnavigation of mainland Britain by Sacha Dench – launched at an event at the Glasgow Science Centre on 18th June 2021. This 3000 mile plus expedition travelled anti-clockwise around Britain and the team were on the last part of their awe-inspiring 3 month journey due to end in the Glasgow region ready for COP26

Here is just some of the press coverage for the astonishing ‘Joanna Lumley and the Human Swan’ documentary which aired on ITV on Monday 1st November and was dedicated to Dan’s memory: “Poignant and timely”, “inspirational viewing”, “astonishing…with its urgent message”, “loved the positivity of #humanswan for #climateaction on @ITV”.
