2nd Tiverton Scouts meeting

Activity information

Activity type: Private activity

Organisation name: Scouts

Church Rooms,
Brewin Street
United Kingdom

We had planned a Commonwealth Games evening on our meeting night of 28th January, but I received an email from Scouts HQ regarding HMD and purely coincidentally I listened to Sir Ben Helfgott on Dessert Island Discs and thought could I combine the storey of his weightlifting with HMD. So the other leaders were keen to take this up and we are going to talk to Scouts about HMD and see if they can lift some gentle weights! During my research I have learned more about the Holocaust and it's been really quite emotional. I have received the stickers, and leaflets thank you very much and I will make a donation in the next couple of days. I lost both my Father and Sister at young ages due to chronic illnesses and so can relate in some small way with the losses. The Scouts are aged 10.5 to 14 years and so I'm struggling to know where to pitch it but I'm going to try with numbers/facts (mostly boys) and see what questions arise and then try to answer. We are going to finish with an arts session creating a Memorial Flame. Hope this helps.
