SUPERHERO beavers from across Slough spent their Saturday decorating cookies, making non-alcoholic cocktails, taking photos with Pudsey and more to raise money for Children in Need.

The youngest members of the scouting community paid to take part in a fun activity day, dressed up as their favourite superheroes, at the 3rd Upton Scout Hut, in Upton Court Park.

Gary Rumble, a Colnbrook scout leader was dressed up as Superman for the event. He said: “It’s good fun but also helps them to appreciate what Children in Need is about and appreciate that other children are not as fortunate as they are.

“It’s fab to see everyone dressed up, everyone seems to be having a really good time.”

Beavers from across Slough get together once every two years to raise money for Children in Need. Each child pays £5 for the day of activities and at least £1 from each child goes to the charity, along with any money left over after all expenses. This year the group made around £60 for the charity.

The children were split into six groups to take it in turns doing activities such as badge making, loom band making and Lego building.

Sue Took, assistant district commissioner for Slough, said: “Charity events help them with their community badges. We try and do a couple of things a year as a district, it’s good for the children to all mix together and it’s also good for the adults. We are all one big team.”

Pudsey Bear was also around during the day to take photos with each of the children.
