1st February to 31st March 2018
This was another ‘double month’ challenge, running throughout February and March. Nevertheless, given the terrible weather during that in that time, it was a fantastic achievement to reach 2,029km, raising £656 for the 1st Newport Scouts.
1st Newport Scout Group (The Old Guard) has its full name for a very good reason – it is the oldest surviving scout group IN THE WORLD! They celebrated their 110th anniversary in February.
They provide weekly fun, challenge, adventure and training for 75 children between the ages of 6 to 14 but they want to encourage even more children to get involved. They are raising money to install all-inclusive access facilities to their headquarters and to install the Island’s first indoor artificial caving system. Hopefully the money that has been raised will help them achieve this.
Thanks once again to Red Funnel for sponsoring this challenge.
