Birralee Scouts raise money for Cancer Council

Patrol Leaders taking the first fundraising shift.

As part of their Citizenship badge, Birralee Scouts from the Girrawah Troop sold Daffodil Day merchandise at The Marketplace Gungahlin to support the Cancer Council ACT.

12 Scouts manned the fundraising stand outside Coles for two hours, selling merchandise and collecting donations. Over $150 was raised despite the wet weather keeping the shopping crowds away. All money was donated to the Cancer Council ACT to help fund cancer research and patient support.

Many thanks to The Marketplace Gungahlin for allowing us to use their site.

Girrawah Troop meets on Monday nights 7-9pm at the Birralee Scout Hall (5 The Valley Avenue, Gungahlin), and is open to boys and girls 11 to 15 years of age.
