Triathlon Sponsorship

2 Aug 2015

Scouting is a charity, and great scouting requires sufficient funds – to run camps, purchase equipment, provide badges and so on – in particular, with our HQ needing maintenance.

1.5k swim (Jonathan Hawes, Group Chairman)
40km bike (Steve Hawes, former Beaver, Cub and Scout at the 9th)
10k run (Chris Hawes, Assistant Scout Leader)
