Cub Scouts raise funds for local CFS

Report: Andrew Ashton TW Scouts Group Leader

To mark 100 years of Cub Scouting, the Branch Commissioner for Cubs has released a multi-part BC Challenge, with six interlocking badges to collect throughout the year that have “100” as an overall theme.

As part of the first challenge, Cub Scouts must fundraise at least $100 for a community organisation that is outside of the Scouting movement.

Two Wells Cub Scouts collected cans and bottles over the course of a few months to raise the money to donate to the community organisation of their choice.

The Cubs all sat down and collectively agreed on Two Wells CFS as the community organisation they wanted to donate the money to.

On Tuesday May 10 the Two Wells Cub Pack went to the local CFS station and presented a cheque for $106 to Kym Barrowcliff, Zac Kyriacoa and Veronica Presley, who were present on behalf of the Two Wells CFS crew.

Steve Cummins, Two Wells Cub Leader explained to the group the Cubs chose the CFS as their choice because of all the work the CFS does for the community and surrounding areas, and the exceptional work they did during the devastating Pinery fire last year.

He is very proud of the work the Cubs have put into raising the money and feels they made a very good decision on choosing Two Wells CFS as their community organisation.
