4th Melton Mowbray Darwin Beaver Scouts Group stays silent to raise vital funds
The 4th Melton Mowbray Darwin Beaver Scouts Group stayed silent for the evening whilst raising vital funds to transform the lives of people with disabilities.
Keeping quiet is a hard task for a group of children, but the 4th Melton Mowbray Darwin Beaver Scouts Group stayed silent for the evening while raising vital funds to transform the lives of people with disabilities.
The Beaver Scouts Group held a ‘silent games night’ after being inspired by demo team, Pauline and demo dog Blythe, who gave them a talk and a demonstration on 6 November last year.
On 23 April, the Beaver Scouts Group held their ‘silent games night’ during one of their meetings, where each beaver scout was sponsored for how many of the nine games they played in silence.
The games included Floor Dodge Ball, Beans Game and challenges such as seeing how many balls they could carry and how many cups they could stack.
Of course, it was the quietest meeting the Group Scout Leader and section leaders had ever experienced, there wasn’t even any laughter!
The evening was a great success and everyone was eager to get home to collect their sponsorship money, which Blythe was invited back to collect three weeks later. They raised an amazing £434.20 – what an achievement!
A huge thank you to the 4th Melton Mowbray Darwin Beaver Scouts Group for taking on this amazing challenge to raise much-needed funds and of course a thank you to those who sponsored the children to stay silent!
