On Sunday 15th November 2020, Dawn and Ciarán will be doing a tandem parachute jump at Beccles. We are raising funds for our local Scout group to help have our New HQ commissioned, invoking the secured pledges for the building which expire on December 31st.
Jumper 1 - Dawn Carman-Jones (Executive Chair)
"Scouting has been part of my life for many years and I have experienced so many opportunities as a result of my involvement, as Executive Chair I am passionate about providing those opportunities to others."
Jumper 2 - Ciarán Carr (Leader)
“Joining 1st Fressingfield Beavers in 2007, I have remained in the group ever since and have been fortunate enough to have participated in numerous camps and activities, most notably – to Kenya in 2016. Helping spread awareness and the importance of a New HQ, knowing how far it will expand our possibilities, is really significant.”
Who we are fundraising for...
1st Fressingfield Scouts is a large vibrant group of 100+ young people from 6 to 25 years old - supported by around 20 adult leaders. We currently have a rented, dilapidated hut in village that we use as our HQ. The existing building has no running water, no kitchen and is served by one poorly lit outside toilet.
These provisions are in no way suitable (especially amidst the Coronavirus outbreak), and with other groups being able to facilitate a phased return to face-to-face Scouting much earlier than us, the future of our historic Scout group is under threat.
