Thank you to the R S Brownless Charitable Trust and the Alpkit Foundation for their donations to support our Agoonoree Scout Camp this year. Without ongoing support we would be unable to go away for a week of fun and scouting activities each year.
Land’s End to John O’Groats Sponsored bike ride
Agoonoree Scout Camps have been held for over 70 years and it is only with the help of our supporters that we are able to keep camping. It has been several years since we held a fundraising campaign as we have been lucky enough to be in receipt of some generous grants.
To fund raise for our 2019 and 2020 camps we are holding a Land’s End to John O’Groats sponsored cycle ride during our 2019 camp. Over the course of eight days everyone on site will be encouraged to help cycle a total of 874 miles on a static bike fitted with a milometer. This is an ambitious distance, but we hope your sponsorship will make it worthwhile.
Many of you will know someone who has attended camp and they can testify to how much fun we have and the life skills that we learn. Please help us to keep camping for another 70 years by sponsoring us at https://www.gofundme.com/agoonoree.
Keep up to date with our progress whilst we cycle at locations across our site, from the flagpole to the campfire, via this website and our Facebook page.
From everyone who has, does and will attend Agoonoree Scout Camp, thank you for your sponsorship and support.
We have been awarded a donation under the Heathrow Community Fund’s Heathrow Active People Initiative (HAPi), run in partnership with Heathrow Airport, to purchase new kitchen equipment. The new equipment will make a big difference to our volunteers in the kitchen as well as being more environmentally friendly. More information about the fund and how to apply for grants is available on the website www.heathrow.com/communityfund
We are immensely proud of Olly finishing the London marathon in a time of 5 hours 35 minutes and raising over £1400 for Agoonoree camp. Every penny helps towards the costs of running our camp – approximately £28 000 – so help us by supporting Olly at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/agoonoree-scout-camp
Thank you to Rutlish Lodge (No. 4416) for their generous donation to support the running of our camp in 2019. It is only through donations, sponsorship and ongoing fundraising that we have been able to run the camp for over 70 years.
Thank you to Helena Wickenden for running the Brighton marathon today and raising over £560 to support us. If you would like to support Helena in this superb achievement you can donate at
Less than 3 weeks to go until Olly runs the London Marathon on behalf of our Agoonoree Scout Camp. We are wishing Olly lots of luck and at the moment he has reached 75% of his fundraising target. Every little would help us run our 2019 camp so please support him to support us here.
Preparation continued over the last two days with our volunteer training weekend. Several existing and new volunteers have been updating their first aid, Makaton (see the word ‘champion’ below) and GDPR knowledge, as well as getting to know each other ahead of this years Agoonoree (Greater London) Scout Camp. The menu has been planned and most of activities booked. As we are staying on a Scout site we have numerous sporting and Scouting activities lined up, as well as an art day and Peter Pan theme. We also have two days out planned to visit local landmarks. To help fund this years camp we will be undertaking a camp-wide sponsored event during the week, further details to follow over the next couple of months.
A huge thank you to Pulses UK for choosing the Agoonoree (Greater London) Trust Fund (charity number 303314) as their beneficiary in 2019. The Trust Fund has supported us for many years and it is with their generous donations that camp continues to flourish.
The planning for 2019 is well underway! We are heading to Southampton and this time staying on a Scout site rather than a private school. Invitations are on their way, bookings for toilets, coaches and marquees in place and the entertainment team are building an exciting programme. This year we are looking forward to new activities such as tomahawk throwing and rafting, as well as the old faithful – swimming. We are looking for additional support for this years camp – see our Support Us page for details of how you can help.
