North West Scouts have raised over £18,000 for ShelterBox and the support is set to continue.
In 2014, we saw the first North West Region Scouts Scavenger Hunt event take place in Liverpool City Centre, with over 30 teams of young people taking part. This has continued each year and in 2018, over 80 teams of Cubs Scouts, Scouts and Explorer Scouts from across the North West took part - and planning is already underway for 2019, taking place on Sunday 5th May.
So far; the young people taking part have raised over £18,000 in support of ShelterBox; and in partnership with Rotary.
The objectives of the ShelterBox Scavenger Hunt are to challenge young people to learn more about disasters and disaster relief work, explore the city’s famous landmarks, and increase awareness about ShelterBox’s disaster relief work around the world.
The North West ShelterBox Scavenger Hunt is open to teams of six Cubs Scouts, six Scouts or six Explorer Scouts from the Scout Counties of Merseyside, Cheshire, West Lancashire, East Lancashire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester West, Greater Manchester East, Greater Manchester North and Isle of Man.
