Looking to 2020

N S Shipping Ltd kindly sponsored the transportation of our container in 2019 and we’re thankful for that continued support for our 2020 camp. It is only through the support from companies such as N S Shipping Ltd that we keep our camp fees affordable for our Scouts and volunteers.

Thank you Pulses UK

The Agoonoree (Greater London) Trust Fund has been supporting us since its inception 50 years ago. Happy birthday to the Trust Fund on its golden anniversary and a huge thank you to Pulses UK and its members who raised over £10 000 in aid of the Trust Fund at their annual dinner last week, as well as directly supporting our camp through the purchase of Christmas cards, donations and sponsorship.

No bake off for us…

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.

Support John to support us

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.

Christmas is coming

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.

Goodbye Agoonoree 2019

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

We’ve done it!

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.

Time for a swim

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

The final countdown

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.
