Scout Camp for Tanzanian Children

One of our Members is going to Tanzania with 4 other leaders from the 9th Aberdeen Scouts to run a scout camp for Tanzanian children.  Most of the children are orphans and the camp will provide them with the experience of a lifetime.  The leaders are raising funds for the camp and would appreciate any support towards this cost.  

They have a JustGiving page here

Thank you for your support 

 One of our members has worked alongside 'Aberdeen Inspired' in their campaign video called Together at Christmas.
It emphasises on the importance of being together at Christmas as oftentimes Christmas can be a very lonely time for some.

Craft and Chat

Our Craft & Chat Group meet on a Tuesday afternoon from 2pm in the Small Hall. Normally the group meets every 2 weeks alternating with the Guild meetings. During the summer months when the Guild does not meet, the Craft & Chat Group meets every week. We get involved in various projects such as Mary's Meals, knitting hats for sailors and knitting jumpers for Fish & Chips Wrapper Babies in Africa. We also make blankets for the hospitals and care homes, small items of clothes for premature babies and sew banners and lectern falls for the church. In fact we are keen to turn our hand to any good cause especially if it involves knitting needles, a crotchet hook, some wool, a cup of tea and a blether. If you feel like getting crafty with us or just simply enjoy a nice cup of tea and a good old chinwag, contact Sheila Cameron on 01224 316716 or email sheilamarycameron@gmail.com
