Scouts and Girl Guides’ com­mu­nity project suc­cess

Mansfield Courier - - TRADES & SERVICES -

MANS­FIELD Joey Scouts and Girl Guides have been busy sewing bears for those in trauma.

The stu­dents, aged be­tween five and eight years old, em­barked on a com­mu­nity project which in­volved work­ing to­gether to build soft cud­dly buddy bears to be do­nated to the Mans­field District Hos­pi­tal for ur­gent care pa­tients that may be do­ing it tough due to an in­jury or med­i­cal in­ci­dent.

The idea of the project is for young mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to help cre­ate a bet­ter world, and make a pos­i­tive change by be­ing ac­tive ci­ti­zens within the com­mu­nity.

As part of their prom­ise and law, Scouts and Girl Guides do good turns and help others, even if it is a small ac­tion.

The Joey Scouts and Girls Guides had their fi­nal buddy bear meet on Mon­day, June 4, where they de­liv­ered the bears and had a tour of the ur­gent care fa­cil­i­ties of the Mans­field District Hos­pi­tal.

The project was made pos­si­ble by the won­der­ful staff at the Mans­field hos­pi­tal.

Thank you to the lead­ers and par­ents who made this project pos­si­ble.
