1st Tadcaster Scout Group Sponsored Walk

We’d like to say a huge thank you to the 1st Tadcaster Scout group for organising a sponsored walk from Bowness-on-Windermere to Tadcaster which took place on 29th June to 1st July 2018. Their walk was raising money for Bloodwise and the group hopes it will raise £5,000.

The walk was held in memory of Andrew Oliver, who had been through scouting in Tadcaster and had become Assistant Scout Leader with the group. He sadly passed away from leukaemia in 1985 at the age of 20.

This year's walk was inspired by one held 26 years ago, in 1992, in Andrew’s memory to raise money for Bloodwise (which was then Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research) and to build the group’s current scout hut.
