The 53rd St Barnabas Scout Group, Limassol, Cyprus, has had a huge positive impact on me growing up as a teenager, and now I want to give something back. My Dad (Stuart) and I are doing something we have never tried before. The Limassol Marathon! More ...

The 53rd St Barnabas Scout group is an English-speaking scout group located in Limassol, Cyprus. Since being a member from 2008, I now help with running the group as an Assistant Cub Scout Leader.

The Group's aims are to ensure that every child that belongs to the group, experiences the best outdoor life they can possibly have. The 53rd did more than this for me personally, allowing me to travel the world representing not just the 53rd, but Cyprus too, in Switzerland on two separate occasions, in Sweden for the World Scout Jamboree, and finally in Finland for the Roverway.

Every week I see kids having so much fun as my fellow leaders and I teach new outdoor skills, play games with them, or even take them on day trips. No one gets paid; we do this because we want to.

However, in order to give the children the very best experiences, many of the activities and maintenance of the scout hut come at a cost that we simply cannot afford. But this is where you and I come in. My Dad (Stuart Mackenzie) and I with great support, and training with the Limassol Running Club over recent months are attempting to complete the Limassol Marathon in March 2015. Running this far is something that we have never tried before! 

If you could please take a second out of your day, and sponsor us, your kind donation will go straight towards the group and allow the members of the 53rd to enjoy an exciting and fulfilled scouting experience.
