Manchester emergency appeal

The events in Manchester on 22 May 2017 shocked the nation.

Greater Manchester Scout County commissioners have launched an occasional badge showing the worker bee (a symbol of Manchester for over 200 years) as a positive gesture of togetherness.

Proceeds from the badge will help the victims of the Manchester bombing by supporting the British Red Cross “We love Manchester emergency fund“.

As promised we ordered 85 badges on 9 June for Parbrook Cubs, Dauxwood Cubs, Arun Scouts and friends of the group.

If anybody wants to order any more you will need to order direct from the Manchester Scouts.

Because of the great demand for badges we are told that they may take up to 4 weeks to arrive.
