We are undertaking a massive fundraising event to raise money for two amazing causes; BBC Children in Need and to help build a new Scout Activity Centre and HQ in Eastleigh- #BrickfieldsBigBuild. All donations will be evenly divided between these two causes.
From July 9th 2023 until early September a Cub (who turned 10 years old during this journey), a Scout (who turned 12 years old during this trip), an Explorer (14 years old), a Network member (18 years old), a Leader and a GSL (both too old to declare ages!) will be walking/ cycling 1750 km (1087 miles) from John O’Groats to Lands End (known as the JOGLE)– an adventure we have named ‘The Great Woggle JOGLE’. We would love for this to become a national fundraiser, with Groups and families from across the country joining us for as much or as little as they are able.
