Sea shanties and sunsets

As the sun sets over camp we sat round the camp fire to dry out from our rafting and sing sea shanties whilst relaxing with a hot chocolate, made even sweeter knowing we have now cycled over the border in to Scotland.

Ahoy landlubbers

As the dark clouds gathered we passed Carlisle on our way to John O’Groats, only 337 miles to go. We really need your help to get us to our fundraising target

We raised the pirate flags before building a raft to reach the treasure. Sea shanties await this afternoon, after the Peter Pan versus pirates baseball challenge.

Cream then jam, or jam then cream?

Today we’ve faced a wet and windy day so spent the time creating art masterpieces. The afternoon brightened when home made scones made an appearance, although debate followed about the cream and jam order. The evening ended with an art exhibition where pieces changed hands for hundreds of Agoons.

Sun, sea and sand

After flag break on Sunday we spent a day in the sun taking part in archery, climbing and shooting, amongst other Scouting activities. All that effort meant the roast chicken dinner was demolished in minutes – having being prepared from scratch in a tent.

Monday saw the excellent weather continue as we headed to Southsea for a day by the sea, finished off by home cooked and paper wrapped fish, chips and mushy peas prepared by our fabulous kitchen team.

Every donation made is helping us run camp this year and in the future.

Leaving Manchester behind

Thanks to the hard cycling of our Scouts and volunteers we left Manchester behind this morning as we continue to cycle North. Thanks to your support we have also broken the £3k mark of our fundraising goal. Please keep donating so we make it to £5k by the time we reach John O’Groats at the end of the week. Your donations are spurring us on through today’s rain.

Our Scouts are doing it for the money…

…and the volunteers for the coffee.

Agoonoree 2019 is here

The advance party is on site and setting up the tents, marquee and kitchen ahead of the coaches arriving tomorrow. This year we’ve given ourselves the additional challenge of cycling the distance from Land’s End to John O’Groats before we strike camp next weekend. All funds raised go directly to running camp.
