1st Clevedon Beavers as a group are taking on the challenge this term of walking the equivalent distance of Clevedon Pier to the Eiffel Tower in Paris – a cool 400 miles.
They will be doing this over 3 walks with each Beaver clocking up approximately 8 miles, for which they will be raising sponsorship for a fantastic local charity called the Springboard Opportunity Group. It’s all part of the Beavers working towards their World Challenge and Community Impact Activity badges.
Formed in 1986, Springboard is the only organisation of its kind in the North Somerset area and has worked with thousands of children and their families and now provides a vital service for over 100 children and their families every week. They work with a wide range of children with additional needs including those with autistic spectrum disorders, physical disabilities, sensory impairment, emotional and behavioural difficulties, communication difficulties and other learning disabilities.
Their mission is to give the best possible start in life to children under 5 by providing specialist early learning and interventions and offering support and friendship to their families.
