Scouts Show Community Spirit

  • 10 November 2021

We are fortunate to be supported by some fantastic groups in the communities we work in. It’s especially admirable to see young people wanting to do something to help others, as was the case with a couple of Scout groups recently.

Stanley’s Own (2nd Copythorne) Scouts took part in a sleep out to raise money for Step by Step. Despite the chilly October evening, they slept under the stars without tents or shelter, only their sleeping bags protecting them from the cold.

Step by Step CEO Debbie Moreton attended the event to give words of encouragement to the intrepid youngsters, and reported that all were in good spirits, focused on the cause and keen to do another sleep out next year.

Meanwhile, 1st Purbrook Scouts invited Step by Step Foyer Manager Lou Davies to talk about the work of Step by Step. The children were engaged in the discussion, asking lots of great questions about what we do and sharing their positive thoughts on how good it feels to help others.

The Scouts also had donations for young people at our Havant Foyer. Each had decorated a shoe box and filled it with non-perishable items. The project was part of the work they do for their Community Badge.

A huge thank you to these fantastic youngsters for demonstrating such thoughtfulness and community spirit.
