    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    If you know me you know I do like a challenge! And every year have to do something a bit tough and a little bit silly :-)

    Well this year instead of just simply climbing up Ben Nevis again, I am going to drive to Glasgow and then walk there first! :-)

    So between the 25th and the 29th June I will be walking the length of the West Highland Way which stretches 96 miles (154 Km) from Milngavie (Glasgow) to Fort William, taking in a huge variety of scenery along the way, including the entire length of Loch Lomond, venturing across Rannoch Moor and scrambling over The Devil's Staircase! And of course fighting off several million midges each day!

    Then, rather than having a well earned rest at this point, I will be spending the Saturday climbing up Ben Nevis!

    Anything you can spare will help 1st Roade Scout group to continue to operate the minibus that is used so much to help our young people get to all the fun places they get to experience each year!

      Well we managed to complete it...but the heat sure took its toll on us! We found out afterwards that one of the days we were hiking the temperature reached its highest in over 125 years!! So pleased we did it though and the scenery was just stunning! I will make sure I upload some photos from my travels as soon as possible. I would also like to say a massive thank you to everyone who managed to is very much appreciated!

    In my youth I had many great years in the Scouting organisation, and now both my kids are either cubs or scouts in the 1st Roade Scout group. They do so much for our kids so I thought it was time to do something to help them too :-)
