Mucky March

We’re really excited to announce our County Litter Picking Project, which will be open to all Sections over the next few months. We know that some Sections and Groups are not currently able to meet regularly online, and hope that this is something your Young People can get involved in without regular leader input – or alternatively, can provide some inspiration for your next Zoom meetings!

We’re aiming to help clean up Leicestershire by taking action, picking up litter and raising awareness of the issues litter creates. At the same time, we’ll be working towards Community Impact badges, as well as many other badges and the top awards for all Sections. We’ll be releasing loads more resources over the next few weeks to get involved with.

Follow Mucky March – Leicestershire Scouts

on Facebook for all of the details and updates, as well as to post pictures of what you’ve been up to on this project.

First though, we need a badge! Ask your young people to enter their badge design on the above page by Friday 5th February – full details on the attachments.

Looking forward to seeing their entries and to Leicestershire Scouts making a positive impact, on our local environment in 2021. Remember, we understand that some are unable to commit much, if any time to scouting at the present time, but we hope this will provide some support and inspiration to all those who are able to make use of it!

Weʼre raising £1,000 to raise money for the NHS and for Charlie’s local Beaver group

Charlie is now aiming to complete his marathon today at 4:30pm on Forest House Lane . To date he has raised over £2,100.00

Charlie will be finishing his marathon today (20/05/2020) at 4:30 on Forest House Lane. He runs down the length of Forest House from Warren Lane and would absolutely love it if people could come out and cheer him on and clap with him.

He ran yesterday in the heat with a friend and found it hard to run in the sun but wanted to be finished for today.  

Anyone who thinks they can still donate the link is here and that would be amazing….

Your support has been fantastic and Charlie has loved reading all of your messages!

know you will all be aware of the amazing amount of money Charlie raised with his marathon run. But did you see that Tim Kidd, Chief Commissioner, had sponsored him.
All of your enthusiasm & energy has put the 92nd Group on the map – very well done.
In these difficult times you are bringing joy & smiles to many families. Xxx 🌈🌈

[16/05, 11:26] Jayne Hutchful: I looked on the Just Giving page & scrolled down to look at the supporters & Tim Kidd’s name is on there, with a photo of him wearing a necker. Xxx
[16/05, 11:32] Amy Heath – ABL: Hi. Yes he sent us a message and congratulated Charlie. He tweeted about how fantastic he’d done. He also had a well done from Paula ratcliffe, marks and Spencer’s and the Leicestershire cricket club as well as Keith lemon and mo farah, they’ve all shared Charlie’s posts with you mentioned too!

Charlie has been inspired by all the fundraising going on and clapping for the NHS each Thursday evening. He wants to do his own challenge and raise money for the NHS and also make a contribution to his local Beaver group who have been running virtual sessions for him and his friends to keep busy during the lockdown. Charlie isn‘t a big fan of running so this is a big challenge for him and he is determined to do it!

#CampAtHome

#CampAtHome 10

Welcome to Leicestershire Scouts #CampAtHome a virtual camp throughout April and world record attempt in conjunction with Northumberland Scouts…

#CampAtHome
Calling all young people from across Leicestershire, Northumberland, the UK, and the Wider World. COVID-19 may have changed the way we do things, but it won’t stop Scouts camping!


We’re organising a month-long Virtual Camp across April, from the 01/04-30/04/20. Ending with an attempt to set the world record for the Largest Virtual Camp on 30/04/2020, when we’d like as many people as possible to participate.


Take up the challenge and let’s keep on #virtually camping, here are the “Rules”:

We’re asking you all…… Hedgehogs, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network, Leaders, Parents, and Young People interested in joining in the fun to:
– Pack a bag
– Build a den at home / pitch a tent in the garden/ hang up a hammock (whatever you can)
– Sleep in your shelter of choice
– Build a ‘campfire’ (real or virtual)
– Take part in a “Scouty activity”
– Help with cooking a meal


MOST IMPORTANTLY…….
Each night you participate share a creative photo, video, blog, etc. on this Facebook page #CampAtHome Leicestershire Scouts & on 30th April with our World Record coordinators at Facebook: @NorthumberlandScouts

Then share them with your Leaders and friends to show that although we can’t meet “Face to Face” Scouting doesn’t stop!

Each Young Person who takes part will be entitled to 1 Night Away for each night they participate (as long as they aren’t sleeping in their bed). Meaning you could get up to an extra 30 Nights Away if you take on the challenge!
Everyone who participates will also get a #VirtualCertificate for joining in, we will also be awarding special #VirtualCertificates for those that manage the full month. Additionally, if you take part on 30/04/20 and we get enough participants you’ll be part of setting a world record!

THE GREAT INDOORS

We know the coming days and weeks are going to be difficult for families across the UK, as the spread of Covid-19 causes schools to close. As the experts in developing skills and bringing adventure to young people, we want to do what we can to help.

While we normally love the great outdoors, we’ve pulled together some inspired indoor activity ideas (if we do say so ourselves). Keep your kids learning new skills and having fun (and avoid hearing ‘I’m bored’ every 30 seconds) all in #TheGreatIndoors.
