Young Beaver Scouts and members of a Mothers’ Union have banded together to help an hospital accident and emergency department.
Goosnargh St Mary’s Mothers’ Union visited the lst Goosnargh Beaver Scout group to show them how their members fill soap bags with basic toiletry essentials for those in need of them at the accident and emergency department at the Royal Preston Hospital.
The MU undertakes a number of community projects and were delighted to assist the Beaver Scouts, who also love to show they contribute to community work from a young age, in filling 16 bags for the department.
The Beavers are pictured above having completed filling their soap bags, in working towards their Bronze Scout Award.
“Well done the Beavers!” said Goosnargh enrolling member Maureen Rooney.
The Mothers’ Union, like the Beaver Scouts, is always busy embarking on new projects and another recent one taken up by St Mary’s members is Fiddle Pinnies, putting zips on pinnies for dementia patients.
Maureen explains that already make knee blankets for Age Concern, Preston, knitting squares, then sewing them together to make nice, warm creations.
