Raising money for Action for Children – Boycott your Bed 2020

Date: 23rd Aug 2020 Author: Bosun

On Friday, 21st August our group ditched their beds and slept in bathtubs, dens, floors, tents and trampolines to raise money for Action for Children.

We had a virtual Zoom meeting on the evening and the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts played bingo and took part in a quiz. They also told us where they would be sleeping.

In total, the group raised an amazing £750 for the charity, plus £125 Gift Aid. Well done to everyone that were able to take part.
