Kent Scouts are doing a LIONAID CHALLENGE across the month of October, to funds for our work – especially our successful human/wildlife conflict mitigation project in Merrueshi, Kenya.

This Kent Scouts Community Impact event is open to the whole Kent Scout community – squirrels, beavers, cubs, scouts, explorers, networkers and leaders.

Good luck everyone and a huge thank you from LionAid for everyone adding their donation to this amazing Challenge.
