During lockdown over thirty of 6th Winchester Scout Group’s Beavers, Cubs and Scouts came up with an imaginative  range of fundraising events and activities to raise over £2170 for Winchester Hospice, as part of a fundraising initiative between Winchester Rotary and Winchester District Scouts. Fundraising activities included cycling, baking, a sponsored silence, walks, acts of kindness, gardening, saying ‘yes’ for a day, an online photography exhibition and Couch to 5k. Everyone who managed to raise over £30 also received their Hospice Challenge Badge.
