Race Round The World

Date: 29th Oct 2020 Author: Scout Leader

COVID-19 is the biggest crisis we’ve faced in a generation. Over 500 Scout groups – many in communities, already vulnerable before the virus hit are struggling. We cannot let these groups close. Join in a sponsored #RaceRoundTheWorld, to raise vital funds.

Over the coming weeks we will be taking part in several activities to race around the world with our Scouts, Cubs, and Beavers, we are asking for just a small donation each time we meet, just send your young person with the change from your car’s cup holder or the money down the back of the sofa, no matter how small the contribution, every amount will make a difference.

Join our #RaceRoundTheWorld: an epic, sponsored challenge to raise money for the Scout Groups hit hardest by COVID-19

In addition to helping 500  Scout Groups survive this difficult time, you will also be helping 4th Heswall cover some of the shortfall due to the cancellation of our own fundraising events.

Each week our leaders will add up the total and donate the amount to our Race Round the World Team Fundraising Page, and, if you are able, please donate directly to the 4th Heswall Fundraising Team Pages below:

Which Team Will You Support?

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
