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.

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 www.gofundme.com/agoonoree

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. www.gofundme.com/agoonoree

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. www.gofundme.com/agoonoree

Our Scouts are doing it for the money…

…and the volunteers for the coffee.
