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.

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. Sponsor us at www.gofundme.com/agoonoree or see our Support Us page for other ways you can help make camp a success.

Thank you to our latest supporters

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.

2019 fundraising campaign launched

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.
