What a fantastic effort by the Scouts!
On Saturday night, they braved the wind and rain to sleep out in cardboard shelters to help raise awareness of homeless issues. The Scouts raised sponsorship money that will be donated to “Room at the Inn” – a Warrington charity for the homeless. The Scouts remained cheerful throughout their ordeal, even when the canopy collapsed, dumping the entire night’s rainfall onto their makeshift shelters. 🙁
Thanks to: Chris for providing lots of cardboard and helping to take it away for recycling afterwards; Mike, Vicky, Nichala & Tom for giving up their Saturday evening; Shaun & Martin for supervising the overnight stay; and Mike & Vicky for coming back early on Sunday morning to help cook breakfast for the Scouts.
Thanks also to the church for allowing us to use their building and facilities for our “camp”.
