Following the success in helping to deliver the 2013 Race for Life in Northumberland, 10 of the the girls from the Cub, Scout and Explorer Scout sections will be running the Race for Life as part of their Chief Scouts Award and Duke of Edinburgh's Award Fitness Challenge.
They have recruited girls from across the other sections in the Scout Group, as well as a number of the female leaders, to join them on the 22nd May 2014 - to raise money to fight breast and other cancers. They have been in training over the winter and spring months and will be abley supported by the male Explorers who have offered to help out with the delivery of the event and join them on some of the fitness runs.
2nd Wideopen will be taking part in National Tree Week (from 23rd November - 1st December 2013), thanks to the generous support of the Woodland Trust, who are providing the Group with 420 young copse and hedgerow trees to plant in the Wideopen and surrounding area, as part of our wider commitment to both the local environment and the wildlife within it.
