Explorer Scouts raise funds for trip to Kenya

Members of the Charmouth Seagulls Explorer Scouts raised funds for their expedition to Kenya with a Big Breakfast

EXPLORER Scouts from the Charmouth Seagulls Unit hosted a Big Breakfast on Saturday, raising £180 towards an expedition to Kenya.

The three Explorer Scouts, Megan and Sean Harvey and Alex Moorey, provided bacon, sausages and eggs to over 60 diners at St Andrew’s Community Hall, with a vegetarian option also on the menu.

They were helped by fellow Explorer Luke Pemberton, while Explorer Scout leader Melanie Harvey and her husband Paul and daughter Bethan cooked all the food.

Sean, Megan and Alex are three of the five Explorer Scouts from the Charmouth Seagulls Unit who are off to Kenya next year. Each of them must raise £2,000 to go on the expedition, during which they will undertake two weeks of community service, involving construction work and other local projects.

They will also visit the grave of the founder of Scouting – Robert Baden-Powell, go on a safari and spend four days climbing Mount Kenya.

More fundraising activities are planned between now and July 2019, which will include a Curry & Quiz Night, another Big Breakfast and a clothes collection.
