When Crick and West Haddon Scouts learned about the impact of the conflict in Ukraine, they knew they had to help.

The youngsters will take part in a virtual hike from Crick to Kyiv this month to help people affected by the war.

Each section will be arranging hikes during sessions to clock up a total of 1,478 miles to provide humanitarian aid. Some members will also walk at home.
