The Buckinghamshire Scouts raised hundreds of pounds for a life-saving service with fun challenges.

The imaginative tasks saw the Beaver Scouts, aged six to eight, and Cub Scouts, aged eight to ten, from High Wycombe (Penn and Tylers Green) Scout Group took on a sponsored walk finishing at a chip shop, a jam jar challenge, sponsored obstacle course, helping with Christmas post and even doing odd jobs in the community.  

After completing the activities, the young fundraisers proudly handed the £775 cheque to the Thames Valley Air Ambulance staff last week.

Tessa Ingram, lead volunteer for Beaver Scouts in Buckinghamshire said: “The challenge badge has been beneficial for both Scouts and the Air Ambulance.

“The children have loved finding out about the air ambulance and have learnt new skills. They’ve also done lots of fund raising and this helps the Air Ambulance. It’s been a win, win for all of us.”
