The annual Round the Island Kayak Event (see story below) has this year supported its usual two main charities (the RNLI and Fire Fighters Charity) but also decided to reward supporting services on Hayling. Every year the Hayling Scouts support the Hayling Island RNLI with a number of our open events including the Kayak Event. They lend us, free of charge, a marquee and tables, and several of the lifeboat crew who are scouts, provide the expertise and muscle to erect the marquee and smaller tents.

This year two scouts are going to the 23rd World Scouts Jamboree. Dom Allgood aged 16 is heading off to Japan to join around 40 thousand scouts from all over the world and to take part in this 3 week adventure. His fellow scout Craig Cooper aged 15 is going to a similar event in Iceland where he will join some 20 thousand others and explore the dramatic scenery. Both are involved in some community service, and will live some of the time with a host family. To undertake these adventures the two boys have to raise £5000 and they have already raised some £4000+. At the lifeboat station (pictured) they were presented by DLA Jules Hewson with cheques for £100 each, to assist them and to thank the Hayling Scouts for their continuing support of the RNLI.
