This December children and young people from 91st Bristol Scout Group have created and donated boxes full of gifts to the charity, Project Mama.
A local charity, Project Mama supports displaced women in Bristol who are refugees, seeking asylum or who have irregular immigration status, supporting them throughout pregnancy, childbirth and in early parenting.
The 91st Bristol Scout Group, which is based at Horfield Baptist Church, donated useful items for the women that the charity supports such as toiletries and items for newborn babies.
Once the gift boxes were collected, they were then taken to Project Mama, helping to make a big difference to the charity’s service users this Christmas.
One of many great community projects organised by the 91st Bristol Scout Group, this particular initiative was organised by the scout group’s Patrol Leader, Alice.
Scout Leader, Kathie Auton, explains: “An extra special thank you to Patrol Leader Alice who arranged this project, contacted the charity and helped the troop to get these boxes together. We are blown away by her initiative, and by the kindness and empathy shown by the troop.”
A huge well done to all the children, young people and leaders of the 91st Bristol Scout Group, what an amazing thing to have done this Christmas!
