The 7th Epsom Explorers decided to support WaterAid as their chosen charity this year and so in February they had a representative of WaterAid give them a presentation, telling them all about their charity and the projects they run.
The Explorers set up a small committee to organise the fundraising and they decided to try and do something different in order to raise money. So last Sunday, 9th July, they held a WaterAid Bath Push in Epsom and also had a bottle and chocolate tombola in the market square.
After much planning, collecting and labelling of chocolate and bottles, folding of raffle tickets, decorating and mobilising of the bath – they were ready. It was a very hot day and, sadly, the bath was too heavy for its wheels, so it only made a minor tour of Epsom town centre! But, the Explorers managed to raise a whooping £400 with their buckets, bottles and rapidly melting chocolate.
A huge thank you to the Beavers and Cubs for the donations of chocolate and the Scouts and Explorers for the bottles.
Well done to all the 7th Epsom Explorers who got involved, whether on the committee or on the day – you were amazing!
