The Scout Group Beaver Colony raised £335 from cake sales for the Guide Dogs for The Blind Association, this makes the donations from the group so far to date over £1000 from sponsored walks and cake sales. The Scout Group enjoyed a visit from the guide dogs and met a puppy in training called Zachary.
The scout group will continue to support this charity.
Volunteers week is an annual event which takes place at the start of June. It celebrates the contribution made by millions of volunteers across the country. 1st Aldermaston Scout Group is celebrating its own volunteers, so if you are one of those people who make our group what it is today, look out for your name on Facebook, we are celebrating YOU……..
Every year Scout Groups help over 450,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors, interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
And it’s not just young people who can get in on the action. Working alongside our youth members are thousands of adult volunteers, with a huge variety of roles and opportunities available.
Why not strengthen your CV while making a real impact on the lives of young people? How much time you give is up to you, and you don’t need any previous experience. We have a huge variety of roles to suit everyone, and whatever you choose, we’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported.
