|One month ago, Grey Pack were visited by RAFT to talk about the reverse advent idea and this week they returned to collect the donations.
Cubs had the option of different paths, with some bringing a collection to be redistributed to others bringing dedicated Christmas boxes. All were eagerly welcomed by the three members of RAFT that visited.
The Cubs were invited to help Santa by wrapping gifts in advance of a coming Christmas party. A blur of gift paper, sticky tape and presents ensued with the results described as “wrapped with love” by a member of RAFT.
Christmas boxes were explored to show how much thought had gone into selecting gifts. Often Cubs thought of a person around their age and picked items that they would want to receive.
One selection brought in a baby hamper case will be separated and restocked for a new baby gift, demonstrating how items can be reused.
Some Cubs were absent but we are still able to take gifts and will ensure they get to RAFT.
Well done to all the Cubs for thinking of others (especially at this time of year) and making Christmas special for all.
