Scouts box up “Treats for Troops”

84 Scouts, 2 veterans, serving troops, leaders, ambassadors and an MP… armed with shoe boxes and heaps of goodies, and a gift from a new supermarket.

8th November was all about packing boxes for our brave troops in Afghanistan. In less than 20 minutes our fantastic team cleared this room and packed 306 shoeboxes which were then transported to Mike Penning’s office to be sealed and sent directly to the troops in time for Christmas.

We would like to thank Aldi who provided a whole pile of goodies even before they open their new store, all our visitors, leaders and young people for the most fantastic team effort, WELL DONE!

Mark Mitchell, CEO of Community Action Dacorum and Local Ambassador for Hemel Hempstead District Scouts said: “Thanks for inviting me to be part of last night. It was super to see 100+ scouts and leaders getting so involved and with such enthusiasm”
