Phil Brown und Rich Young - The 44th Gloucester (STRS) Explorer Scout Group
The 44th Gloucester (STRS) Explorer Scout Group at Sir Thomas Rich's School regularly holds several fund-raising events each year, primarily to raise money for charity. This they do by staging discos for the Year 7 and Year 8 pupils of Sir Thomas Rich's and their neighbouring Grammar School, Denmark Road High School for Girls (see picture below), as well as organising two very popular Quiz Nights each year. From the funds raised by these events we regularly donate to two local charities, The Meningitis Trust and The Cobalt Appeal's "Crack Cancer Campaign", as well as the BBC's annual "Children In Need Appeal" and the Sir Thomas Rich's link school in Uganda.This year we have added European Partnership - Schools in Need to our supported charities. During his work exchange visit to Aachen this year Scout Chairman Richard Young presented a gift of €200, which we hope will be the first of many regular donations to Schools In Need.
