On Saturday, Newcastle District took part in Newcastle Town Centre’s 1st Food Festival. Taking over the area by the Market Cross and Guild Hall, they had raffles, tombola, tea and cakes for sale, cooking pancakes on tin cans, pizza ovens made of cardboard boxes and heated by tealights and a climbing wall.
All the activity was to raise awareness of Scouting in Newcastle and to raise money for North Staffs Young Mind, a charity chosen by the Youth Executive, and the District itself.
It was a very successful day and the District raised £1006. This will be split between the District and North Staffs Young Mind.
