2nd Squirrels Heath Beavers - Community Project
To end this year, our Beavers were involved in a very important Community Project, as part of their World Challenge Badge. We aim to do a Community Project every year at our Beavers colony. Last year, we raised £438.96 for St Francis Hospice, through their Jam Jar Army project. This year, our project involved getting our Beavers to design some amazing Christmas Cards and put together some donations to give to elderly people in our community, who are clients at the home care company, Radfield Home Care Havering. The Christmas gift bags have been made up and are being distributed to the clients, and each of them have been so pleased to receive their cards and gifts. We cannot thank all of our parents/carers and Beavers enough for their amazing generosity and very kind donations. Their kindness may have helped someone smile at what can be a very lonely time of year. We were so overwhelmed by their generosity, that when we had finished making up the gift bags for the clients at Radfield, we had a lot of stuff still left over - and so with the remaining gifts, we have made up three hampers, one ready to donate to St Francis Hospice, one to a local food bank and one to Wickes, who all donate them to families and individuals in need at Christmas. Therefore, the generosity shown by our colony will have touched many hearts this Christmas, so quite simply, thank you to all that were involved in this amazing project!
