Volunteering.


Bingham Co-op have included us as one of their Local Community Fund beneficiaries. This means that Co-op members can nominate us to receive 1% of the value of their purchases of Co-op brands in store. If you are a Co-op member please visit the Co-op website and nominate us, if you are not already a Co-op member perhaps you could think about it? You can do it online, or in store, or see one of our section leaders for a copy of the Co-op membership application form.


If plenty of people nominate us we could get several hundred pounds towards new camping equipment from this.


We are very close to being able to open a 3rd Beaver Colony to cater for the young people on our (long) waiting list. The biggest stumbling block remaining is finding somewhere for them to meet! We are looking for a Thursday evening (probably 6pm - 7pm) although we might consider Mondays. If we can find a suitable venue we could start very soon; we have someone ready to volunteer to take charge of the Colony. We will still need to persuade more adult helpers to join us, we expect some of the parents of the young people we offer places to would volunteer. If this doesn't happen the Colony will be unsustainable. But first we have to find a meeting place - any ideas please get in touch urgently.
