The 6th Beeston Scout Group, supported by the Magellan Explorer Scout Unit and Trent SN Network Scouts, have raised an amazing £1739 for the ShelterBOX charity.
Colyn Kemp, Group Scout Leader at the 6th Beeston said “Conscious of the plight of others less fortunate than ourselves, and as part of our commitment as Scouts to ‘help other people’ we decided to do something about it.
“We contacted ShelterBOX - a charity that supports people who have lost everything as a result of a man-made or natural disaster. They distribute ShelterBoxes that contain the bare essentials to house families, keep them warm and fed, (free from mosquitoes) and includes tools to help them rebuild their lives. The boxes even include crayons, books and sometimes a cuddly toy for children. It was the perfect choice of a charity for our young members to help.”
We would like to invite all young members, parents, volunteers and supporters to attend our Annual General Meeting.
The AGM will be held between Beavers and Cubs at 6:30pm in the Scout HQ. In advance of the meeting, you can read the Annual Report and Annual Accounts (2013-2014) by vising our Reports and Accounts page.
Last week, the Cubs began work on their Entertainer Badge. After half an hour of deep preparation, each of our three sixes took to the stage! Green Six started the bill with their own take on a Horror story, followed by a play by Red Six - where all died in the end, of course. To finish the evening of entertainment off, White Six provided us with a dance choreographed by our own Young Leader!
A quick game of Cricket and the awarding of some badges rounded off a fantastic evening for the cubs. Thank you very much to our Young Leader for an excellent job organising the Cubs and our entertainment!
