£1000 donated to Appleby Scouts for their excellent manning of the food stop at Appleby town room, during the Eden Epic Sportive. The Scout Group agreed that as the Scouts do the lions share of the work that half the money raised can go towards the cost of a week away to Aldershot in October half term. During the week the Scouts will be visiting the military museums (mainly the gruesome ones), spending a day in Portsmouth visiting HMS Victory and a speed boat tour of the harbour, a day spent caving an underground bunker complex, paddling Basignstoke Canal and a trip to London Dungeons on Halloween – as well as all the usual Scouty stuff they get up to whilst they’re away. The balance of the money is going to buy new tents etc. so that all sections (6-18yrs old) can go camping!!
