Bags of help at Sainsbury’s

Posted on May 7th, 2017 by Tony McAndrew

Members from 17th Tynemouth met up with 2nd Tynemouth at Sainsbury’s in Heaton yesterday for a charity bag pack.

We were there to raise money for Childrens Cancer Fund, which is Sainsbury’s chosen charity this month, and also to help raise funds for the groups involved.

Lots of our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts turned up to help. We even met a famous footballer at one of the checkouts!

We’d like to give a huge thanks to everyone who turned up to support this bag pack, and to Sainsbury’s and the Childrens Cancer Fund for the opportunity.

We will update you as soon as we know how much was raised from the day.

Scouts in the Community

Posted on April 1st, 2017 by Tony McAndrew

Earlier today, 17th Tynemouth Scouts took part in our first Scouts in the Community project. 12 Scouts, 5 Cubs and 1 Beaver from the 17th took time out of their busy weekends to help out at the Church of Our Lady & St. Columba in Wallsend. All of the team jumped into action to assist, and carried out a range of work including:

  • Reorganising storage inside the church
  • Clearing garden waste
  • Weeding the garden
  • Sweeping the paths
  • Polishing brass-work
  • Dusting the church
  • Cleaning the windows

The Cubs spent 2 hours and the Scouts 4 hours working around the church and the gardens. We hope visitors to the church notice a difference!


Huge thanks to all of the members who turned up today to lend a hand.

More photos of our work can be seen in The Gallery
