10th Warrington Scout Group Fundraising

We continue to raise funds to support all our youth groups and cover big purchases such as camping equipment and maintenance to the scout hut facilities.  If you have any questions or would like to help with our fundraising please contact fundraising@10thwarringtonscouts.org.uk.

Between 5th and 15th April 2021 our scout section walked the length of the UK to help our fundraising effort.  They completed the challenge ahead of schedule, so they kept on walking until the 15th and racked up a further 109 miles – well done to all of you.
