We are making a big difference, locally...

As part of a county-wide Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) project to support the eradication of homelessness in Gloucestershire, a kit drop was arranged during the Cotswold Marathon event on Saturday 8th February 2020. 

Participants and supporters were asked to bring along donations of clothing, tents and toiletries to support Gloucester City Mission who support those who are homeless in and around the city of Gloucester.

Many thanks to all of those who donated to this cause at Cotswold Marathon and well done to everyone who took part in the event itself!

We hope to arrange more similar activities at future events around the county to support local homeless charities and show the impact that Scouting can have on our local communities. Keep your eyes peeled for events and resources to support such activity in the near future!

If you have any questions or would like to be involved with SDG projects in the future, please email Lauren Greening on dcc.perception@gloucestershire-scouts.org.uk.
