Cumbrae Fun’raiser for Quarriers

06.06 - 45thMembers of all sections of 45th Greenock and District Scouts got on their bikes (having first got on a boat) to join in a round-Cumbrae ride to raise funds for the Finding your Feet charity.

Finding Your Feet was set up by Corinne Hutton, to help those faced with a life-changing trauma or injury to find their feet in life again. The weather held out and the Quarriers team raised more than £640 for the charity.

Everyone managed the 10.25 mile ride without trouble and a great time was had by all.

Kilmacolm Beavers Go On A Hike

06.06 - 42ndKilmacolm Beavers had a great time at summer camp last weekend at Finlaystone Country Estate. They enjoyed den building, mini beast hunt and hiking adventures. A lot of new Beavers celebrated their first camp too. A big thanks to the rangers and parent helpers.

Everest Challenge Reaches New Heights

06.06 - everestThe Everest Challenge Scouts and Explorers upped their game a bit in May, climbing two Munros back-to-back, and their first 1000m hill as well. They climbed Beinn an Dothaidh at Bridge of Orchy and Stob a Choire Odhair in the Black Mounts. Better than that, fifteen of the group were awarded their Eiger neckies, and one Scout – Franek – passed the 19,331ft milestone to earn the first Kilmanjaro neckie of the year. The group earned praise for putting up with a fairly miserable Sunday, but when the clouds cleared they did get some great views down Glen Orchy and North over Rannoch Moor and the Black Mounts. They are now looking forward to another weekend hillwalking in June.
