Breakfast for the Homeless

Saturday 19th October  Breakfast at the Scout Hut

Saturday saw a hive of activity in the Scout hut with eggs, sausages, pancakes and hot drinks. Tommy and his team did a fantastic job with the most complicated hot chocolate recipe in South Cambridgeshire and Esme and Pandora made more cups of coffee than consumed on you average county camp.

A big thanks also to the Co-op in Shelford who provided a substantial discount on ingredients and to Bakers Butchers for the sausages and bacon.

We raised a total of £433 for Wintercomfort bringing out total raised to over £2000 so well done to all the Scouts involved.

Coracle Building

After considerable online research we have identified the most unstable boat which is both highly sinkable, unsteerable, prone to capsizing, almost impossible to paddle and not very comfortable.  As such it seemed an ideal project for the evening.
