1st Wootton Rooks Beavers helped the homeless of Northampton. Each lodge was asked to bring in a type of food for pack-ups for the homeless in preparation for this weeks session. We were visited by the local charity, 100 Ladles, who talked to the children about being homeless and what the charity does to help them and how we all can help and get involved.
The children made up 100 pack-ups of crisps, fruit, a chocolate biscuit and carton of juice, with a sausage roll or pasty will be added to Saturday night from a local bakery. These pack-ups will be served to the homeless and hungry of Northampton Sunday lunchtime after receiving a hot meal from the charity Saturday night.
Rooks Beavers absolutely loved this session and got a great buzz out of knowing they’ve done a good deed for the day.
