NESST Challenge Walk 2022 - Cancelled

After having to cancel last year’s walk due to COVID-19 we were very excited for this year’s walk and have made every effort to try and ensure that this year’s walk could go ahead.
With the current COVID-19 infection rates we have been forced to look at alternatives to enable us to operate in a safe and secure environment for both our volunteer staff and participants.
It is with much regret that having considered all the alternatives and suggestions put forward we have been unable to find a safe workable solution and therefore have been left with no other option but to cancel this year’s event.
We recognise that this will cause much disappointment for all involved especially for our young people who have been through another tough year and will have been looking forward to the event.
If you have transferred funds via BACS please get in touch via email to advise if you would like a refund or to hold funds till next year. Any cheques received have not been banked and will be securely destroyed.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused and we very much look forward to next year’s walk on 21st January 2023.
Yours in Scouting
