Alexandre in year 9 at Ormiston Park Academy completed the 100 miles canoeing challenge on the river Wye during the May bank holiday weekend.
Alexandre along with members of the 2nd Upminster Scout Troop canoed 100 miles in 3 days.
His scout troop are raising money for the Gambia Hornchurch International Scout Project.
Alexandre enjoyed it very much, it is a great experience for young people his age to push themselves out of their comfort zone and see what they are capable of.
For more information about the project he is fundraising for please visit: http://www.ghisp.org.uk/
Well done Alexandre, the academy is very proud to hear of your achievements which support community and global efforts.
