Scouts looking for help to renovate their garden

The 3rd Scout group of Patras has a long history since 1927. Its located in the upper town of Patras (old city). The last 10 years we struggle to survive. We have been facing many financial problems. The old scout group decided to help us by raising funds from their own income in order to help young scouts which is very difficult. The renovation of our building it just started last year but we have too much to do and we need lots of money. We hope to manage to do the renovation of the new building and make a new beginning by raising public awareness of community and encourage more kids to join the scout group, but with current economic situation in Greece it seems very difficult. All this years with other scout groups of Greece were present at the side of the society at all the difficult moments, helping people in need. 3rd Scout Group of Patras - Facebook Old Scouts of Patras - Facebook Τhe Scouts of Greece Greek Scout Groups can be found all over the country at about 500 points, as well as in Greek Communities abroad. There are 25.000 members, boys and girls. Children and youngsters 7-18 years old experience Scouting in Cub Packs (7-11 y.o.), Scout Troops (11-14 y.o.), Venture Scout Units (15-18 y.o.) and Scout Networks (19-30 y.o.). What We Need For now we need to renovate our backyard garden and make it more pleasure to stay during the summer, It’s a place that we can make lots of meetings with our scout troop. We need to remove some old trees and fix the old fountain and decorate the place with wood such as wooden outdoor furniture. We going to build a Garden Bird Net and an outdoor bookshelf, with a study corner and a place for making crafts. There is still a lot of work to do, and put in a lot of effort. This is why we need your help!! The Impact Our society needs now scouting as never before. Help us continue providing services to our community! We aim at providing an educational proposal to the young people of Greece – boys and girls – through a system of progressive self-education, the Scout Method, based on a value system. Let us start our new beginning and 3rd Scout Group of Patras start living again.
