Beeston Scouts Raise over £1700 for ShelterBox

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.”
