Thurso Beavers Raise £350 For Children's Home In
Second Thurso Beavers have been busy "beavering"
away in raising funds for a childrens home in Goya, India. At recent
"Beaver Drive" and through collecting 20 pence pieces in "smartie" tubes a
magnificent £350 was raised . All of this money will be donated to the
"Father Angel Niketan" Boys Home when Beaver Leader Sandra Carson visits
there next week. The money will purchase books, equipment and assist in
much needed repairs to the Home. The Second Thurso Beavers have
supported this charity of several years now, but this year there will be
an added bonus in that the Home will receive two football team strips,
donated to the Beavers. Transporting these to India could have been very
expensive but, Emirate Airlines have waived the extra baggage allowance in
order that no additional charges will be incurred.
