The Great British Bake Off has left bread week and biscuits behind but our kitchen team won’t have a scone between them. Unfortunately two of our hard working ovens haven’t made it past our 2019 afternoon tea and need replacing for our 2020 camp. We need to raise £2400 to purchase two new catering style gas powered ovens. Support our campaign here.
A huge thank you to John Paddington who first volunteered with us in 1973. John is swimming 6.5K round Brownsea Island in Pool Harbour – the birthplace of the Scout movement, and two weeks later swimming 10K up the river in Barmouth, North Wales – all in aid of our 2020 camp. If you would like to sponsor John you can do so here.
New for 2019 we are producing our very own Christmas cards. Look out for more information at the end of September about supporting us through the purchase of cards designed by our very own Scouts and volunteers.
After a year of planning, a week of camping and a day of packing, Agoonoree 2019 has come to an end. We leave behind a few marks on the grass and take with us numerous happy memories. Thank you to our volunteers for giving up their time, our Scouts for their enthusiasm and our supporters for enabling camp to happen.
If you would like to help make Agoonoree 2020 as memorable we would love to receive your donations at www.gofundme.com/agoonoree
As the sun sets on our final evening of Agoonoree 2019 two of our hardest cycling Scouts took us across the finish line at John O’Groats, as our furthest cycling volunteers counted down.
Over seven days numerous Scouts and volunteers have come together to cycle 874 miles. Thank you to all our supporters who have encouraged and sponsored us, you have made it worthwhile.
After a visit to Fort Nelson we’ve picnicked and spent a few hours picking up essentials in Fareham. There is just enough time for a cooling swim before our end of camp meal, awards ceremony and disco. Not forgetting the final ride over the finish line! www.gofundme.com/agoonoree
Thanks to the hard pedalling of everyone on site, and all our visitors, we will make it to John O’Groats this evening. We still need your help to meet our fundraising target though. www.gofundme.com/agoonoree
First though, a day of shopping, swimming and exploring a historic fort.
This morning we’ve left Fort William behind as we head for Inverness, only 173 miles to John O’Groats. Whilst we continue to cycle northwards, even at flag break, others are learning new Scouting skills. www.gofundme.com/agoonoree
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.
