Scouting and NHS couple Phil and Jennie’s challenge with their own scouting offspring and Scout Explorers from Arrow district Scouts would impress any adventurer. The John O’Groats to Landsend (aka JOGLE) challenge can never be taken lightly. But with kids from 9 years old this couple are braver than most.
John O’Groats to Landsend Map Partner
Who else? Of course, SplashMaps became the team’s map partner after our Ambassador, Chris Howard (The Coast Walker and hero of the 15 Marathons in 15 days challenge) connected us at the National Outdoor Expo in March 2023. ‘What they are doing is phenomenal’ explained Chris, himself a man who adventures every single day. ‘Not only are they stretching the limits of parenthood, they are raising funds for such important causes’.
As a Scout Ambassador Chris recognises how pivotal the international Scouting movement is in so many lives. The Woggle JOGLE raises funds for an upgrade of their existing near 100 year old wooden hut to create a community climbing centre, extending the benefits of Scouting to everyone. Half the funds will go to Children in Need.
Having donated maps (of course) to this cause, SplashMaps and the team found willing businesses in the local community eager to get behind the team. Official t-shirts and support for a 1/100th scale challenge in their home town, Chandler’s Ford, followed.
