Kent Scouts we are putting together an exciting expedition for 40 of our members to charter and crew an Antarctic sailing vessel.
Almost one hundred years ago, back in 1921, the great explorer Ernest Shackleton selected two Scouts to join him on his final Quest expedition to Antarctica.
In 2021, on the 100th Anniversary, Kent Scouts hope to recreate this experience for thirty Network scouts and ten adult leaders. We have named ours the ReQuest expedition.
As well as doing our own local fundraising we are contacting organisations and companies for financial sponsorship and during 2017/2018 we must raise more than £300,000.
