Kind hearted Beavers from 1st Woosehill Scout Group raised £119.10 for local charity, Dingley Family & Specialist Early Years Centre, through their hard work over the half term break. Dingley provides a place where children, from birth to five, with additional needs and disabilities can develop skills through play under the supervision of qualified staff and is the Woosehill Beavers’ chosen charity for this academic year.
Boys and girls from Swifts and Kingfishers were given a Good Deed form to fill out with jobs that they had done for their families and received ‘donations’ in return for their efforts. Tasks such as bed making, cooking breakfast, putting out the bins, washing the car, walking the dog and even brushing the cat all added coins to the two colony’s collection. Even better news, once the total was in, the money raised was match funded through Localgiving.org/charity/Dingley giving an amazing final total of £239.10!
