Be Prepared – FPS Help Luton Scouts

FPS Luton Branch donates proceeds from Wolf Run to local Scouts.

In April, 30 FPS employees successfully completed the Wolf Run. Participants tackled a 10K obstacle course, in this unique wild-running experience.

The FPS Luton branch put in a fantastic effort both on the day and in the run up to the event. The team raised a grand total of £611, donating £255 to Sport Relief and the remainder to their local Scouts group. This cause is extremely close to one runner’s heart. Kendall Morris, a van driver from the FPS Luton branch, is an Akela at the 4th Dunstable Scout Group.

The 100-year old building, the Scouts congregate in, was in desperate need of repair. With the help of Luton’s dedicated Wolf Pack, the club were able to fix their leaking roof. With over 110 young people in the group, the building houses 2 Beaver Colonies, 2 Cub Packs and 1 Scout Troop. It was therefore essential that this maintenance was carried out.

Kendall’s own Cub Pack consists of 29 children, both boys and girls. They take part in a variety of activities ranging from archery to earning badges. Most recently, the Scouts earned their disability awareness badge.

FPS Luton is thrilled to have made this valuable contribution to the local community.
