Members of 1st Clevedon Beavers have set themselves the challenge of walking the distance from Clevedon Pier to the Eiffel Tower in Paris to support Springboard Opportunity Group.

They will be covering the distance over three walks with each beaver clocking up around eight miles.

The walk makes up part of the beavers’ work towards their world challenge and community impact activity badges.

Springboard Opportunity Group is a charity which supports children in North Somerset with additional needs and 
disabilities.

The vital service helps more than 100 families each week through its play and learning sessions and inclusion and family support service.
