Bagshot Flood Appeal – Thank-you!

Thank you to all the Beavers, Cubs and Scout at 1st Bagshot Scouts, that brought along donations of kitchen utensils, pots and pans of all sorts and cutlery on Monday 10th March, as part of the support requested by Bagshot Village Flood Appeal.

Nearby communities were flooded by the Thames during the recent wet weather.  The initial response was food donations, which were collected by different venues throughout the High Street in Bagshot and delivered to relief centres by the St Vincent de Paul Society (SVP).  This aid was focused on immediate impact, supplying those families who had to be evacuated from their homes as well as the emergency and uniformed services and volunteers supporting them. 

The next wave of the SVP appeal is to provide furniture and everyday items to the families who are being placed in temporary accommodation while their houses are pumped out, dried out and made habitable again.  They have plenty of furniture, but what they are short of is pots, pans, cutlery and cooking implements, hence our request.
Making a positive impact in our communities and preparing young people to be active citizens are important aspects of Scouting, so it is fantastic to see not only such a great response to the Appeal, but also that they have fun doing it!

The Leaders and Executive, Bagshot Scout Group.
