Our History with the Kennington Scouts

It’s great to take a trip down memory lane every now and then. We recently went back nearly 10 years ago to revisit Darren and Simon’s epic walk up Ben Nevis in Scotland. The pair laced up their boots in order to raise money for the Kennington Scouts, who were aiming to raise £300,000 for a new building as their base.

The link to helping the Scouts went back over 60 years, as Simon’s grandfather, Edgar Blake provided them with their very first base to call home.

Simon and Darren fantastically managed to raise almost £900 for the Scouts and news of their achievement made local newspapers in 2010. This was a really great way to help the community and we’re still proud all these years later.
