Making a difference
Scout Groups from across the UK are busy taking part in Scout Community Week 2014…
From collecting food and clothes for local charities to clearing up local parks, there are thousands of Scouts working to make their communities a better place.
Getting stuck in
Scouts in London have gone that extra mile; 2nd East London and 3rd Paddington have worked together with other organisations in their local area to make a real impact, which includes gathering food for a local food bank.
Nanpantan Cubs and Scouts in Leicestershire got stuck in to their project with the Great Central Railway and are painting some fences overlooking the Quorn and Woodhouse station; preparing it for upcoming summer events.
1st Stony Stratford Beavers embarked on a litter pick in their local park earlier this week. The leaders, alongside The Parks Trust, set up games and challenges for the Group also. Natalie, from The Parks Trust, was appreciative of the Scouts’ efforts: ‘Thank you Beavers for all your help litter picking. You have helped to keep your environment safe for people and animals.’
Meanwhile, Cubs from 25th Beech Hill ISB Scout Group in Luton volunteered to renovate the garden at their local nursery school and worked hard for three weeks to design and build it.
There are still so many projects going on with lots planned for this weekend. Make sure you keep sending in photos of all your incredible Scout Community Week work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
