Swifts and Kingfishers Beavers joined forces for their annual Olympics on Wednesday 2nd July. Six groups, comprising youngsters from both Colonies, took turns to tackle a series of events such as: penalty shoot out; golf challenge; balancing act; keepy uppies; and in the bucket.
The eldest Beaver from each Colony held aloft the 1st Woosehill Olympic ‘torch’ as they led the teams in a parade to the event ground. After much fun and good sportsmanship, the points were added up and the winners declared – the Green Team! Each received a special 1st Woosehill Beavers Olympic Badge to display on their jumper or camp blanket and the runners up were all awarded a small prize.
At the end of the session, athletes and their parents were able to buy cakes and cookies from the Leaders’ charity cake stall to raise funds for this year’s Swifts’ nominated charity, Crossroads that provides respite for local children that are full-time carers. This was added to the voluntary £1 ‘entry’ donation giving a total of £67 raised! Thank you for your support!
