In July of 2011, a group of 35 Venturer Scouts, Rovers Scouts, leaders and parents travelled to Vicente Guerrero, Mexico for 16 days. After 18 months of planning, fundraising and volunteering, the group travelled a total of 8,200 kilometres by bus to help provide four local deserving families a hand up out of poverty. The group worked alongside these families for a week to assist them in building their homes. The group is now planning to create an emergency fund for Hero Holiday to use to provide emergency care (food, healthcare, education) to this community in Vicente Guerrero, Mexico.
