Swim to Haarlem

21 January 2019

We challenged our Scouts to swim 361 lengths: one for every mile of the distance to Haarlem where we are going for the Jamborette. The swim took place last Saturday (12th) and 22 Scouts recorded an amazing 1,246 lengths between them!

Thanks to David Barnett who came up with the idea and ran the Swim to Haarlem event, and to everyone who sponsored the swim by buying a square on the display board, helping us to raise £550 for the Haarlem fund. The three Lucky Squares were drawn on Friday and the results were:

  • 1st prize (£50): Square no. 21 – Alex Baron
  • 2nd prize (£30): Square no. 50 – Samantha Applin
  • 3rd prize (£20): Square no. 40 – Corinne van Rheede

Thank you, everyone, for your support.
