Hike to the Moon!

Date: 1st May 2020 Author: Richard Smith

The 7 th Darlington Sea Scouts took part in Hike to the Moon! On 23 April, BBC Children in Need and
Comic Relief got together for their Big Day in on Radio and their Big Night In on TV. This was a
massive fundraising special to celebrate the incredible people making a difference in communities
across the UK, and to support people who need it most during the coronavirus crisis. Scouts, along
with friends and family, collectively walked more than 240,000 miles (the distance to the Moon),
raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for the event.
