Ruari is a Scout with the 1st Whittingham BP Scout Group and is planning to join an expedition to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda in July, alongside a Ugandan Scout troop and local children.

All will be taking part in projects to educate local people about how they can live in harmony with the forest.
