Race Round The World

Thank you to everyone who has taken part in #RaceRoundTheWorld: our challenge to raise money for Scout Groups hit hardest by COVID-19. The race may be over, but you can still make a donation until 8 January!

Over the last six weeks, young people and their families, volunteers, and former Scouts joined one of four teams to #RaceRoundTheWorld.

Collectively, they’ve travelled over 150,000 miles round the world, learning about different customs and cultures along the way through our range of globetrotting activities. They’ve also raised over £220,000 through sponsorship and a grand total of over £250,000 including direct donations, making a world of difference to the Scout Groups hit hardest by the COVID-19 crisis.

The race may be finished but there’s still time to get your donations in to help us reach our magic £300,000 target. We're collecting donations up until 8 January. Remember every pound and penny raised will be match funded, too.

£228,632 raised (and still counting!)
