Scouts Hike to the Moon

On 23 April, BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief are getting together for the Big Day In (on radio), and the Big Night In on BBC1 from 7pm. They’ll celebrate the people making a difference across the UK and fundraise to support the people most affected by the coronavirus crisis.

Scouts from across the country are getting involved too – we’re asking young people and their families to hike just one mile each – we’ve done the maths, and it’s about 2,000 steps or 20 minutes walking on the spot.

You can hike around your home or garden, or out on your daily exercise if you’re able to.

So get started now by pulling on your walking boots (or your slippers), recording your miles and making donation to Children in Need. It took the Apollo XI crew three days to reach the Moon – let’s see how long it takes Scouts!

Don’t forget to share your photos and achievements with us on our Members’ Facebook Group too!
