Scouts took to the streets over the weekend to kick-start their fundraising for a new headquarters.

Ten-year-old Adam Warren, from 2nd Stamford Town Scouts, organised a virtual fun run.

Beavers, cubs, scouts and leaders were challenged to run one, three, five or 10km with prizes on offer for the best times, the best costume and the individual and family who raised the most money.

Each runner received a goodie bag sponsored by Jaffa Fruit, Rachel Persani Body Shop Consultant and Marcia May Mini.

The run raised £3,027 which will go towards the £1m target.

The group unveiled its plans to build a new headquarters in Empingham Road last week. The facility will be opened up for use by the wider community.
