We hiked to the moon!!!
By Rhys Bennett

Never have we been prouder of our 5th Risca family!

During the COVID-19 lockdown, our wonderful 5th Risca family have pulled together and have done something truly remarkable! Together with Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and volunteers from across the UK, 5th Risca put on our trainers and our hiking boots and went out for a walk of at least 1 mile as our contribution of The Scout Association's 'Hike to the moon' which was supported by astronaut Tim Peek! Some of us managed to get our videos in before the deadline, and so we have put a little compilation together. 

This wasn't just for fun, there was a serious point to it. Whilst this lockdown is happening, many support charities are struggling for funds to keep some of their key services operating, and so Children in Need and Comic Relief pulled together for a BBC Big Night In, and we as Scouts were mentioned on it. We have raised almost £300,000 as a Scout movement in the UK.

5th Risca have collected £104 to date. If you'd like to donate to the Big Night In via 5th Risca's efforts to Hike to the Moon please donate here:
