The Trinity College Scout Group will be celebrating its 100 years and service to the community in year 2014. To celebrate this momentous milestone the Scouts will organize a series of events in 2014. As a prelude these events and take the message of our centenary around Sri Lanka, this year we plan to organize a Bicycle tour around the island along the costal belt. The event will be titled “Around Sri Lanka in 12 Days”.
Scouts are well known for their service to those in need. We the 17th kandy Trinity Scouts decided to organize this cycle tour and a series of events in 2014 which would focus on community service.
The main objective of the cycle tour is to create awareness on cancer and raise funds for the Cancer Hospital to be built in Kandy. This will be done in collaboration with the Cancer Home Kandy. The aid we receive through sponsorship and will be donated to the Cancer Hospital and to patients afflicted with cancer towards their medication and basic requirements.
In addition to this, we hope promote our centenary celebrations and to garner support for the special community programs that the Trinity College Scouts have planned in 2014. We also believe that through these, we will be spreading the true spirit of scouting throughout Sri Lanka.
