Canoe for Scout Group, Gravesham, UK

The Apollo Explorers in Gravesham, Kent use canoes for training for activity permits, for teaching younger Scouts and are also considering conducting Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme expeditions by canoe.

Kent Scouts awarded a 300 grant in July 2009 to the Group to help purchase open canoes, funded by the JWCT to encourage adventurous activities in the county. The Scout group were having difficulties funding the costs of additional canoes to expand their water-based activities. They have already raised a 1,000 through other fundraising and are looking to raise 3,000.

Nick and Tricia Willson, charity trustees, attended the launch of one of the canoes at Yalding, on the River Medway, on 29 July. Nick said “Jeremy was a keen Cub and Scout and as such we are keen to see the JWCT support some of the activities he enjoyed.”
