OH Sing oh ye Scouting
Members of both Beaver colonies "Thumpers & Conkers" and Cub packs "Birchwood & Wolf" joined together on Saturday 12th December to bring Christmas cheer to the many Christmas shoppers at the Maltings.
Although few in numbers their singing rang out throughout the Maltings, and shoppers enjoyed listening to some old festive favourites such as Wish You A Merry Christmas, Rudolf and Winter Wonderland with a quick rendition of I Need a Balti to spice things up!
The total money raised from this was £162.87 which will be spilt 50/50 between the group and the Royal British Heart Foundation in the memory of Stuart Rolland a leader of our group who sadly passed away last year from a heart attack.
This is the second year that the group has been asked to sing at The Maltings and we’re proud to say the shopping centre have asked us to make this an annual event.
Thanks must be given to Lorraine Bullock "Chipmunk" of Thumper's Beaver colony for arranging not only the songs, the coordination between the groups different sections but also the parking for those who attend.
And of course a huge thanks to the Beavers, Cubs and leaders for helping make this a great festive jolly.
