Year 7 Students Swim for Kent Scouts

Two of our Year 7 students, Silas and Seb, set themselves a goal to swim one hundred miles to raise funds for a Kent Scout expedition to Antarctica.

Even though they are too young to go on the expedition themselves, they wanted to help their fellow Scouts undertake research, promote the scouting links to Antarctica and have a tall ship experience of a lifetime.

The Kent Scouts ReQuest 2021 expedition commemorates the 100th anniversary of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s last expedition to Antarctic on which two scouts were members of the crew.

Silas and Seb started their challenge in June this year and completed the one hundred miles swim on the 28th October and have currently raised £220.25.
