Dot Wilkes, one of the longest serving Scouts in both Leicestershire and Charnwood District,
recently celebrated her 90th birthday!
Dot has been part of Scouting in Leicestershire since she was 15 years old, and has helped
hundreds of young people and adults on their adventure through Scouting.
She has been a member of Syston Scout Group for a number of years, so to celebrate her birthday
they held a special party at Systons Scout HQ, with all of her Scouting friends and family. The group
even had a spectacular birthday cake in the shape of a uniform made especially for the occasion -
and very tasty it was too!
We wish Dot all the best, and a very happy birthday!
Eight Cubs and one Beaver from Barrow took part in the Loughborough Santa Fun Run. They managed to get the entire way round with out any moans and groans but with lots of enthusiasm, excitement and determination. They all had a fantastic time taking part and want to take part again in next years event.
They where raising money for LOROS and Rainbows. Their Leaders Charlotte and Ruth where both very proud of the young people for taking part and completing the challenge.
Well done to the Cubs and Beaver (and the leaders!) for taking part.
Last month we told you about the hard work Bradgate Scouts did by selling poppies for the poppy appeal. They have just received the total of what they raised.
The Scouts raised..... £253.54
Well done to all the Scouts who took part in the fund raising. That is an amazing amount of money raised for the Royal British Legion
