Your chance to abseil off the Falkirk Wheelhave you got the nerve?

Are you brave enough to abseil down Scotland’s iconic Falkirk Wheel and raise money for Scouting?  If so, join Scouts Scotland on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 April.  It’s a great way of fundraising for international trips or for day to day running costs for your group. There are 40 places available on the Saturday and 60 available on the Sunday.

For each participant there is a £30 registration to pay. You are then asked to confirm your commitment to raising a minimum of £150. Of this, minimum sponsorship of £50 goes to Scout Scotland and everything else goes towards either your individual international Scout trips or for your Groups / Districts.

With past experience of running such events, on average individuals raise between £200 and £450 each. So far there are 10 participants from 2 groups in North Angus taking part and they have opted to raise money for their summer trip to Ireland. If they hit their fundraising targets(taken from their individual fundraising pages) they look set to raise between £4,000 and £5,000 for their group.
