Kidderminster District & Severn & Teme district Scout Association’s raised £13,807.90 over the recent Christmas period from supermarket bag packing and is very grateful to the Wyre Forest public for their generosity.
The monies raised will assist groups in their general scouting activities during the year and in particular a contingent of Cub Scouts were raising monies for a camping trip in 2013 to Gilwell Park in Essex whilst some Scouts and Explorers Scouts raised funds for a jamboree camp to Kent also in 2013.
Many thanks for all the kind comments with the leaders, boys and girls thoroughly enjoying this interaction with the local community.
A special thanks to Morrisons and Sainsbury’s for as usual giving us excellent assistance and we hope everyone as benefited from the activities.
Cub Scout Eliza Curzon of 21st Kidderminster Air Scout, Cub and Beaver group said “I enjoyed the bag packing talking to the shoppers and doing something different in the community”
District bag packing co ordinator Mark Searl commented “The young people love the interaction and seemingly the Wyre Forest public warmed to them having their bags packed in the main”.
