This weekend the 17th South West Cheshire Scout Group embarked on a huge challenge walking a total of 34 miles from Frodsham to Whitchurch to complete the Sandstone Trail. The sponsored walk was completed by 7 of the leaders who were up at 4.30am on Saturday with blister plasters all packed and ready to go. The Cubs and Scouts joined the leaders for a total distance of 6 miles whilst the Beavers, age group 5-7 years, walked along the ridge and up to Rawhead, the highest point of the trail for a total of 3 miles.
This ambitious Scout group completed the walk to raise funds for their much needed stores. The stores have been on the group’s grounds for over 50 years and are now crumbling and leaking. To secure the group’s equipment and provide additional space for their expanding membership they need to raise a total of £33,000 of which they have already secured around £20,000. The group has broken records in Cheshire by growing year on year for the last 11 years and still have a waiting list. The additional storage and multi-use space will help considerably in reducing the waiting list and securing their vital outdoor equipment.
