Scouts take to the water thanks to Trust support

Scouts Logo


DOZENS of scouts are taking to the water for canoe and kayak sessions thanks to a grant of almost £1,000 from the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust.

1st Hornsea Scout Group has 80 members, and a £992 donation from the Trust has enabled them to buy extra helmets, buoyancy aids and oars to ensure more youngsters can enjoy water sports and the great outdoors.

Scout group leader Lis Watson says the grant is helping the kayaking and canoeing scouts, who are aged between eight and 18, to grow in confidence and gain extra skills.

She said: “We are absolutely delighted with the grant. We only had enough equipment for half of the group before, but now we have 24 helmets, including 14 bought with the money from the Trust.

“It has been a particularly successful year as we have had eight of our group, including some leaders, take professional canoe qualifications which enables them to instruct.

“It gives them another string to their bow for adult life. They can find a new passion and it opens up new opportunities.”

The group meets at Hornsea Scout Headquarters in Hornsea Burton Road, Hornsea, for Beavers aged six to eight on Mondays, and for Scouts and Explorers, who are aged up to 18, on Thursdays.Lis said: “Scouting might be a national organisation, but we operate best in the local community and it’s great that we can form partnerships with local firms. The best help you can get is from the local community.

“When you watch all the young people in the canoes and kayaks in the water you can see their sheer enjoyment, their confidence build, and the progress they are making.”

Rock climbing, archery, cooking and shelter building are among the other activities open for Scouts to try.

Other scouting groups, including 1st Brandesburton Scout Group, have also benefited from the new canoe and kayak equipment.

Lis said: “Scouting is based in the outdoors, so every year we get involved in the Wolds Challenge and the Fells Marathon, which is a weekend of hiking and navigational challlenges.

“That’s what Scouts is all about – giving young people the opportunity to grow in confidence and explore life.”

The Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust aims to give back to the community and invites groups to apply for grants of up to £2,500, with a total of £100,000 available over a 12-month period.

Jo Hudgell, chair of the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust, said: “It’s wonderful to see so many opportunities being made available to young people at the 1st Hornsea Scout Group.

“We’re really pleased the grant from the Trust is ensuring more young people can enjoy kayaking and canoeing, while gaining extra skills and opening up new opportunities along the way.”
