22nd Rugby Scout Group
22nd Rugby Scout Group
Our local group works for our community by giving children aged 6-19 years the opportunity to try new activities; learn new skills; make friends and take more exercise within a caring environment.
Scouting has been proven to have a positive effect upon our children especially when dealing with common social issues, for example: peer pressure, bullying and low self-esteem.
We help children to learn important skills such as first aid and road safety; we encourage exercise by arranging games and outdoor activities, and through a series of badges our children progress and grow. We have close links with our community and involve our youngsters in many activities to strengthen this bond. We are able to enrich the lives of youngsters: the skills which they learn at Scouts benefit them, and others, for the rest of their lives. Everything which we do in our group is for the benefit of children and teenagers. We have always welcomed children with special needs and fully integrated them into our group, our work with these children is often the most rewarding. Many of our children come from split or low-income families.
In order to continue our work we urgently need to replace our old wooden hut. We have a long-term lease for the site and have secured planning permission. A recently retired local builder is using his experience to project-manage the work and his contacts to drive down the costs. Our most competitive quote, using environmentally-friendly structural insulated panels is £130,000. Our children, young leaders, leaders, helpers, parents, friends and committee have been fundraising for two years, bringing in 65% so far. We are going to need help to achieve our aim.
22nd Rugby Scout Group aims to:
- Children gaining self-confidence to successfully deal with issues within their lives, building a caring attitude to assist other who may need help.
- Improved physical fitness of children and better healthy lifestyles continuing into adulthood.
- Children will have acquired networking and team building skills enabling them to work well at school and in future workplaces both as individuals and part of a team.
- Children will be able to make new friends and gain independence through regular hikes and overnight stays at camps.
