As part of Scouts’ Community Week, 10th Ilkeston Scout Group raised money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and local cause Ben’s Den by completing a triathlon.

Scouts and leaders cycled 23 kilometres along the High Peak Trail from Middleton Top, then ran or jogged six kilometres from Middleton to Wirksworth swimming pool before swimming 0.5 km. The team raised a massive £2,200, split between the two charities.
