Alex was the winning bidder, and once UPS had delivered the parcel he had this email for us…..Over to you Alex.

Just wanted to let you know the packaged arrived perfectly.

I am a Cub Scout den leader here in the US (cub scouts being children from the start of Kindergarten through 5th Grade (Years 1 through 6 I believe in the UK system)) and the dens are grade based, with the various dens forming a pack.

The council I am in (Northern Star Council) is lucky in that we have about 32 square kilometers (7900 acres) of land across 8 council owned camps which allows us to have a very robust camping program here starting from the time someone joins in Kindergarten. 

That being said I am also on our council’s cub scout camping team, we are looking at ways to increase attendance at camps and camporees so can float that idea with the rest of the team.  We are the 6th largest council in the US by total membership.

As a reminder Alex was the winning bidder on our Charity Auction of a set of 2018 Damboree badges, which raised £102 which was split between Shelterbox and DePaul who support those who are homeless. The payments to the charities was made just prior to Christmas.

So a big thanks to Alex, and the other bidders taking part. We’ll be looking at ways we can support those charities in future.

We also hope to work with Alex on promoting Damboree to Cubs in the USA…..Who wants a site visit?
