Scouts Walking to the Moon

Scouts are going on a #HikeToTheMoon! Young people, families, and volunteers like us are hiking at least a mile at home, donating, and supporting those who need it most with BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief.

Get involved:


On 23 April, BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief are getting together for the Big Day In (on radio), and the Big Night In on BBC1 from 7pm. They’ll celebrate the people making a difference across the UK and fundraise to support the people most affected by the coronavirus crisis.    


We’ve come up with a way for Scouts to get involved too. We’re asking young people, volunteers, parents, and carers to hike just one mile each – we’ve done the maths, and it’s about 2,000 steps or 20 minutes walking on the spot.


You can hike around your home or garden (if you’re lucky enough to have one) but please be safe and follow government advice – you don’t need to leave your home to take part.  

You don’t have to wait for 23 April to hike your miles. Get started now by pulling on your walking boots (or more likely, your slippers), recording your miles and making your donation. It took the Apollo XI crew three days to reach the Moon – let’s see how long it takes Scouts!


As always, we want this to be as accessible and inclusive as possible. If hiking’s not for you, we’ve got some great alternative ways to do mission control miles, which are just as important.


So what are you waiting for? We’ll see you on the moon!
