Cub Scouts make a difference at Christmas time
In November 2020, we asked Cub Scouts from across Avon to design a Christmas card for the crew of HMS Prince of Wales, an aircraft carrier associated with Bristol, all 700 of them!

Each Christmas card that we received was entered into a draw for a prize; with the Captain and his officers selecting the winner .
We are pleased to announce that Lotte from the 62nd Bristol (Horfield Methodist and Parish Church), Seeone Pack, Cabot District, was joint 1st prize winner with Ethan L from 1st Burrington and Wrington Cub Park, Axe District. Here are the winning cards.
Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant Mrs Peaches Golding OBE CStJ who supported the initiatve, sent a lovely message “WOW – what an amazing bundle of cards!!! You and your volunteers have done a tremendous job in producing these fine Christmas cards. It is better than I could have imagined. I am so grateful and know that every person on board HMS PRINCE OF WALES will be as thrilled as I am to find such a generous hand of friendship from the Scouts.”
