Scouts get messy to raise money

IT WAS messy work raising money for the 2nd Warwick Sea Scouts’ new headquarters.

Youngsters from the group took on the ‘Mini Military Mud Run’ to toward the £650,000 needed to fund their much-needed new hut in St Nicholas Park.

But the 5k challenge wasn’t enough for nine year-old Abigail George who decided to take on the 9k course instead and earned her Silver Chief Scouts Award too.

And six year-old Hannah Bosworth pushed herself to do the 5k route instead of the shorter 2k and helped the group raise £500.

The scouts have raised over £130,000 so far and are urging people to help them continue their fundraising.
