Anyone walking around Testwood Lakes after dusk on Friday 22 June would have been surprised to see kayaks and dinghies still out on the lake. The 24 hour sponsored Paddlethon starting at 6 pm on Friday, aimed to raise money for the Group as well as giving young people from all the sections the opportunity to get out on the water and learn new skills.
Leaders and young people splashed, paddled, rowed and tacked their way around the lake in relays. A few managed to grab some sleep whilst others were out on the lake.
On Saturday Cubs and Beavers also took to the water in the perfect conditions, with brilliant sunshine and light winds, watched by parents and friends of the Group who enjoyed a BBQ in front of Aquativity.
Many thanks to the Leaders and Instructors who made this possible.
