Bramshill tackling tricky subjects for change

Home / News / Bramshill tackling tricky subjects for change 

As Scouts we care about our community and think deeply about the challenges around us. In January, Scout volunteers and Explorer Scouts from Bramshill joined forces with the DSM Foundation to raise awareness and fundraise towards their efforts.

The DSM Foundation is a charity that works with schools, teachers, parents and professionals from nearly 500 organisations across the UK, encouraging young people to make safe choices and to have the confidence to stand up to peer pressure, especially when it came to substances like alcohol and drugs.

Jacqueline from the charity, which was founded in 2014 following the passing of 16 year old Daniel Spargo-Mabbs, led interactive activities covering the dangers and legal implications and encouraged questions from the audience.

The Scouts themselves played a part, not only with the hosting and organising which we know was much appreciated, but also in helping raise over £185 for the charity's work through the selling of handmade gifts and blanket badges.

Jane-Louise Dippie, Bramshill District Scout Leader, said about the event:

As a district scout leader, mother, and school worker I would recommend every district hosts a similar event. It was great to see everyone mucked in, a show of Scouting and the community at its finest. The biggest thanks and appreciation go to Fiona and Tim who continue to push forward, making a difference to many youth and adults alike.
