It is with deepest regret that I have to let you all know that Jan Doole, our Assistant Scout Leader, unfortunately had a tragic accident on Tuesday 2nd September while climbing in the Cairngorms. A rock fall resulted in a large boulder striking Jan which resulted in her death. Mountain rescue and the air ambulance were called but there was nothing they could do.
Our thoughts go out to her family.
Funeral arrangements have been confirmed as Monday 22nd September at 12:15 at Amersham crematorium and afterwards at Mentmore Golf Club at 2pm.
The service is open to anyone who wishes to attend as is Mentmore Golf Club afterwards. We suggest that anyone involved in Scouting wears uniform for the funeral.
Jan's family have asked that donations are made to the HIghland Mountain Rescue Team rather than flowers. Donations can be given direct or passed to Keith Malcolm or Ian Hale for sending on.
