This month, web developers Six Ticks was proud to be part of a group of local businesses who pledged donations to fund a County Beaver Scout Group’s ‘dream trip’ to Legoland.
Four Shropshire companies, including Six Ticks, came together to pledge funds which will enable the 1st Bayston Hill Beavers to visit the Windsor based attraction.
The group is made up of 22 children from the ages of six to eight-years-old from Bayston Hill and the surrounding areas, including Condover and Cross Houses.
Six Ticks, Bayfield Vehicle Hire Hometyre, and J&PR contributed to the trip. The Beavers will enjoy the theme park for the day, but the overall visit will be part of a two day sleepover where the Group will work on a number of badges and skills, including; map-reading, safety skills, a robotics workshop, and much more.
Stephanie Henson, of Six Ticks, said:
“We are delighted to support the Beaver Scouts and contribute to what will be an amazing few days of learning and fun. We hope they have a great trip.
“Teaching children life skills is extremely important, it’s great that even at the age of six the badges the Beaver Scouts work on include Digital Maker and Digital Citizen.
Russell Evanson, leader of the 1st Bayston Hill Beaver Scouts said:
“Supporting young people to make choices and take responsibility is core to how we deliver Scouting.
“In 2014, Scouting for All – a four-year strategic plan - laid out the ambition for Scouting to be shaped by young people working in partnership with adult volunteers.
“As part of that plan, YouShape was launched – a campaign supporting volunteers to encourage young people to make more decisions, shape their own programmes and take on leadership roles.
“This trip is a big part of helping the Beaver Scouts to achieve these badges, to develop their physical and social potential and work towards the wider aims of ensuring they are responsible citizens and members of their local and national communities.”
