In January, the 5th Cork The Lough Beavers held a cake sale in aid of local community group Lough Meals on Wheels as part of their “Share and Care” certificate. This project is a community involvement initiative run by Scouting Ireland which aims to increase, promote and highlight community involvement by Beaver Scout Colonies all over Ireland.
Beaver leaders Pamela Lombardi and Sandra Byrne encouraged and helped the beavers who decided they wanted to help local people who need a hot meal. The 5th Cork Lough Beavers decided to support the local Lough Meals on Wheels again this year as they are a brilliant volunteer organisation who cook between 60 to 70 hot meals per day and deliver them to people who can’t cook for themselves because they are elderly, just out of hospital or unwell. Their team of volunteers cook the hot meals and deliver them to those who need them every day.
Along with help and guidance from their beaver leaders, they made tasty cookies and beautifully decorated cupcakes. The scout hall was smelling lovely and all the beaver parents went home with delicious treats!
All the tasty treats sold out in record time and made €50!
The beavers then presented the cheque to Diane and Tracey (L to R in attached photo) from the Lough Meals on Wheels who also presented the beavers with their “Share & Care” certificate! It was a fantastic initiative and the Lough Scout Group are so proud of their beavers and their brilliant act of kindness in their community.
Well done to all the beavers and their leaders Pamela & Sandra who did a great job helping the beavers bake so many tasty treats!
