Beaver Scout Nepal Fundraising

0

We’re sure that you’re aware of the earthquakes and resultant humanitarian disaster from the images and reports in the media. Hundreds of thousands of people are now homeless with entire villages destroyed and a risk of further fatalities is high with shelter, food and clean water key priorities.

Our Beaver Scouts are taking part in a fundraising activity on Thursday May 21st to raise funds for Shelterbox.

Shelterbox provides emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities around the world overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis.

So far, more than 2,600 shelter kits and almost 500 UN specification tents have been distributed by Shelterbox to families in a variety of areas including the capital of Kathmandu, and the districts of Dhading and Sindhupalchok. Each tent will provide vital shelter for a family whose home has been destroyed, while shelter kits contain the vital items to enable families to create temporary shelters and start repairing their damaged homes.

Our Beaver Scouts have sponsor forms and a JustGiving site has been created for anyone wishing to donate to this worthy cause.

Thanks

Virgin Money London Marathon

I completed the 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon on 26 April in 3:45:13 to raise money for The Scout Association. You can see how much I’ve raised and still sponsor me through my fundraising film or my VirginGiving site. What an amazing experience!

Thanks for all the support ‪#‎LondonMarathon‬ @UKScouting #UKscouting

Jim Buckley

It is with great sadness we report the passing of Jim Buckley.  Jim was a member of the 20th Sheffield (Ecclesall) Scout Group for over 70 years as a Wolf Cub, Scout, Rover and Leader.

He became Group Scout Leader in 1961, a position he held for over 30 years and on retirement became Honorary GSL and continued to support the Group until ill health prevented him.

It is impossible to say how many young people have had so many opportunities because of Jim’s decades of service.  We will all miss him.

 

 

The picture above is the traditional Scout tracking sign which means gone home.

 

 

Jim’s funeral will be held at Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium on Tuesday 31st March at 10.00am.

 

Family flowers only, donations to the Woodland Trust – more details will appear here when we have them.

Answer That!

Answer That!  was a huge success on March 14th.  Over 120 people joined in the fun and raised over £800 for the Scout Group which will be spent on camping equipment to support the young people of the Group.
