Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and parents we have the opportunity to increase the amount of newspaper, magazines, leaflets, birthday cards, Christmas cards and other thin card. This helps with our fundraising. It can either be brought to your section meeting or collected once a month on collection days, sorry it can only be collected on the above dates in Belton. Beavers, Cubs and Scouts recycling is part of your award work.
We also need your help to collect the paper in the village of Belton. If you can help please let Brown Beaver know 01493 780965 or john.clarke33@btopeneworld.com

For information about the new Needlework class at the JGI in Belton please contact Linda Davis at ladavis273@btinternet.com Every Thursday evening 7pm to 9pm or just turn up.

The ‘National Community Service’ Group

This is what we did for our social action project, all on a weeks deadline,
working with 15 others! We did a lot of fundraising and even chipped in our
own money, by having a ‘Fete’ at Fritton and also doing some bag packing at
Morrisons, to then go on to create this amazing place for people which may
have long term difficulties to go and get away from the public to do some
potting and learn about plants.There is an area outside which they can also
go over to and sit down just to get away and chill out. We are all very
pleased how this has all turned out especially with so little time and
so much work to be done! There was a lot of disagreements and debates on
what to do and how, but that all turned out to be very good with all the
ideas everything had! Well done to everyone on the NCS group to bringing
this all together! At the end of this everyone had a smile on their face!
Good work!
Tazmyn Buxton.

BELTON FUND RAISERS reach £20,000The Bargain stall and charity quiz sheets in Belton have now raised over £20,000.00 since June 2006 shortly after the JGI reopened, the figure was passed at the Mammoth Sale at the JGI on September 20th. when that event alone brought in over £280.00 Originally the group ran as The Friends of the JGI and raised money just to help the halls trustees keep the building going but with that on an even keel they reformed as Belton Charity Fundraises so that as well as continuing to support the JGI they now make donations to other village groups and local organisations.
The main sources of income are the monthly stall at the JGI, the Mammoth Sales and stalls at the Craft Fair/ car boots at the New Road Sport and Leisure Centre as well as the quiz sheets set throughout the winter months by Gloria Swan who also sorts all the stalls donations. Other members of the “Fundraisers” are Jack Fuller, (chairman) and Wilma Fuller, Maureen Boreham and Brian Swan, We also have regular help from Eileen Webb and Ron Boreham with extra assistance at our larger events.
The group would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has donated to the stall or supported us in any way over the eight years, we always welcome donations of stock, almost any items are appreciated except those that run on mains electricity and items of used clothing. If you can help please call Gloria on 01493 780776 or contact any of the other “Fundraiser Group” members. At the moment any items suitable for the various Christmas stalls would be most welcome.Congratulations to all involved from the web siteCutting from EDP October 22nd 2014
