During last year Legend Explorers managed to raise an amazing £2510.00 for ShelterBox. From various fund raising events, including a sleepover with 1st Coggeshall Beavers in the local Church.


This money has helped towards 20 different boxes helping people around the world.

Legend Explorers currently have 5 active Young Leaders, helping out at Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Throughout the next year we are expecting to get most of these through all their required training and move them towards finishing the missions.
