Event: bag packing

Cub Scout Law
Cubs Scouts always do their best,
think of others before themselves and
do a good turn every day.

At Christmas the shops can be very busy and shoppers become increasingly frazzled. We like to do our good turn by helping the Budgens shoppers pack their bags. Although this is not about raising money, we do have collection buckets for donations and last year collected over £520. The money we raise stays with Parbrook Cubs where we use it to subsidise our subs and camps, reducing the costs that you have to pay.

Because we cannot cope with all our Cubs at one time we have split them up by six. We have also divided each day into 2 sessions although Cubs can swap between the groups and can arrange to do both sessions if they particularly want to.

When: Saturday 13 and 20 December, 10am to 1pm

Where: Budgens supermarket, Billingshurst. Meet us at the rear checkouts

Who: We hope that all our Cubs will be able to take part but we cannot cope with them all at once. We’ve divided each week into two sessions and have allocated a six to each of them. However, you can do the session that is most convenient to you as long as we get all of them covered. We need 4 Cubs per session. Let us know by returning the reply form. It’s all online – no paperwork required.

  • Saturday 13 Dec, 10 to 11.30 – yellow six – Lily, Aiden, Adam P, Lauren
  • Saturday 13 Dec, 11.30 to 1 – green six – Jim (+Mel), Ethan, Lily
  • Saturday 20 Dec, 10 to 11.30 – red six – Grace, Craig, Lauren (+Matt)
  • Saturday 20 Dec, 11.30 to 1 – blue six – Isabella, Alex

We’ll update the guest list as the forms come in.

Adults: Raksha and Jacala will be manning the checkouts on both days but we would welcome an additional adult to help out in each session if it gets busy

Wear: You should wear your uniform. If you have a Christmas hat then you can wear that too.

Points: All the Cubs that help out in our bag packing sessions will earn points for their six which will go towards our December points competition.
