Beavers organise a book collection!
Before the Coronavirus lockdown started, the Beaver Colony had been collecting good quality, second hand books as part of the "recycling" theme that we have covered in Cubs and Beavers over the past year or so. The books were donated to Ykids for their bookshop Kingsley & Co. in The Strand shopping centre by our Beaver Leader, Hillary Griffin.
Ykids is a children's charity working to make a difference to the lives of children and young people in Bootle. The bookshop has been closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, so instead the books were distributed to children in Bootle as part of an activity pack to keep them occupied during the lockdown.
