Charity Walk in memory of Bill Kemp

On 1st November Jason Dale (VAN MAN), Denise Hyman (ROBIN), Neil Obler (FALCON) along with their children are taking part in a charity 10k walk in order to raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer Action.

We are doing this walk in Memory of Van Man’s Father/ Margaret Kemp’s husband BILL ‘Willie’ KEMP who sadly passed away recently.

Bill as many of you know was a devoted family man and involved in scouting in Bracknell as well as in Scotland, he started his career from a very early age and leaves a legacy behind him.

Parent & Child Camp 2015 “Trading Post” Winners

2015 Parent & Child Trading Post winners27 of our Beavers, Cubs & Scouts took their mum or dad on an adventure to Earleywood camp site in Ascot to participate in the annual District Parent & Child camp held over the 18th/20th September.

We played games and completed in activities around the theme “Game On”, bringing back such classics as “Space Invaders”, “Old Maid”, “Mouse Trap” and “Hungry Hippos” to mention just a few.

Over the weekend we completed the “Crew Challenge” to build a complete chess set, played 10 different games and completed over a dozen “Trading Post” challenges.

To say we were busy would be an under-statement, however we all had a fab time and our hard work paid as we won the “Trading Post”.

Well done everyone so proud of you all and looking forward to next year “Lets get funky now”

Sophie’s Stars Broadgate Stair Climb

broadgateSophie’s stars had a great day starting with a stroll to find the tower before heading off for a light breakfast together, then before we knew it, it was time to do our warm up training with toucan training then off we went up the tower, after 15 minutes we were standing on the roof of the tower looking out across London, whilst admiring our medals as well as the view,
a lift was provided to get back down the tower so other participants could carry on with their climb, once we had collected our belongings we headed for our complimentary pasta lunch and hot drink courtesy of chef Gino D’ Campo.
Next stop was to find a nice pub for a celebratory team drink before heading back to the train station to get home so we could continue the celebrations with team drinks, nibbles and board games.

Sophie’s Stars Charity Challenge 2015

From Denise Hyman (Robin – 2nd Bracknell Bisons)

On February 28th 2015 myself and a few others will be taking part in a fund-raising challenge to help raise funds for The Shooting Star Chase Children’s Hospice which is a charity that cares for babies, children and young people with life limiting conditions and not expected to reach their 19th birthday.

The charity supports the families from diagnosis to end of life throughout bereavement providing nursing, practical, emotional and medical care, Shooting Star Chase is a charity very close to my heart as they provided care and support when they looked after my niece at the end of her very short life.
