Tea for the RNIB

Date: 24th Jun 2017 Author: Scout Websites

This month has been a busy one for both Farnsfield Beaver colonies with an active programme for both as well as new starters joining the adventure.

Our Tuesday night colony have been working towards gaining their road safety activity badge by learning about how to stay safe in their surroundings. The activity badge consists of learning about the Green Cross Code, Water Safety Code and safety in talking to strangers. It also include pointing out dangers in around your home as well as locally. This all culiminated with a visit from Nottinghamshire County Council’s Road Saety Team who took them around the village to point out dangers and how to be safe while out and about in the village.

The Wednesday night Beaver colony have also been very active working towards the highest award in Beaver Scouts, Chief Scouts Bronze Award, and their Community Impact badge. This has found them learning about the RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) and their work nationally to everyone affected by sight loss. On Wednesday 14th June the Beavers held a ‘Tea for RNIB’ party where parents and supporters were invited to enjoy tea and cakes! The little fundraiser raised £64 for the RNIB!

Thanks you to all those that have helped make this terms programme a great one and the contributions to the RNIB. If you think you can help but not sure with what. Why not get in contact with Chris on 07779324341 or go to
