1st Ardrossan Cubs group

Themes(s)2. Poverty & Inequality;

Project Summary:

Our group has been unable to offer any additional activities for the children.

Now that restrictions have eased we hoped to arranged a night away with the children and to offer a water and climbing activity as this is good for team building for them and gives them an experience that they will not receive elsewhere.

Feedback from some parents was they have no spare money for the kids to do this experience.

This money would allow us to open the event to all children to experience and build their confidence and take away a happy childhood experience.
