Scouts from across Yorkshire have taken part in the 59th Yorkshire Agoonoree; an action packed week of fun, challenge and adventure for young people with special and additional needs.
This year’s event, which dates back to the 1960s, was held at Birch Hall near Scarborough and saw the 30 participants try out a whole range of exciting outdoor activities; everything from archery, building survival shelters and team building exercises.
Adult Volunteer, Jack Appleby, said: “Scouting’s character, employability and practical skills for life are open to all, regardless of their ability. The Yorkshire Agnoonoree is a good example of this; mixing with people from all walks of life.”
He added: “What’s more? The parents and guardians of these young people can use the time to rest, or even take a break of their own. That’s why I’m a Scout and proud.”
The Yorkshire Agoonoree organisers are now fundraising for their next life-changing adventure. You can find out more, and how to kindly donate, here: firstname.lastname@example.org
