Marie Curie Nurses
Ever since our Beaver Leader had the services of Marie Curie nurses during her own Mums illness in 2007, the Beaver section have raised money for this worthwhile cause.
Most recently we have held a Tea Party and invited other members, parents and friends and our Executive Committee to buy cakes decorated by the beavers and have a cup of tea. Some 40 parents and members attended and £50 was raised for this worthwhile charity.
Beavers will be planting daffodils in the autumn as the next activity to raise money for this important cause.
Our daffs were planted and we took them home in January with a smarties tube. The sweets were eaten and the tube filled with 5ps. Generally the beavers earnt them by doing jobs. We banked £35 for this great charity. We are now considering our Tea Party again. March 2012
