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.

Together we travelled 150,000 miles around the world, raising over £350,000 through sponsorship and direct donations.

The money you raised was matched by a generous donor (up to £300,000) taking our total to a grand sum of £650,000 – that's an amazing achievement, thank you!


£650,000 raised. THANK YOU!
