Inspired by a talk from John Norgrove, 1st Laxdale Scouts have raised £650 for the Linda Norgrove Foundation with a sponsored hike up the Clisham.

Scouts learnt about the history of Afghanistan, about Linda’s life and the work that the foundation is doing today – funding education, health and childcare for women and children affected by the war in Afghanistan.

After camping in Harris the night before, the Scouts enjoyed mostly dry weather for their ascent of the Clisham and, as can been seen in the photograph, were rewarded by clear views from the top.
