Beavers and Cubs bounce for boxes!

25/02/2010
Beavers, Cubs and Leaders from the 2nd Garlinge Scout Group in Margate, Kent have raised enough money for more than two ShelterBoxes! They achieved this amazing feat by bouncing ... on their feet!

Around 30 eager participants were sponsored to see how many times they could bounce on an inflatable castle in a minute. The fewest bounces in a minute was an incredible 79 while the winner managed an astonishing 128!

Sue Cook, a leader in the Scout group said: "The children took it all in their stride and bounced without any problems. The leaders on the other hand struggled to stay upright and were very out of breath after the minute!"
 
ShelterBox would like to thank everyone at the highly athletic group for their brilliant fundraising.
