Poo as far as the eye can see

12 June 2014

371801292405265_Toilet_Twinning_logo_256_x_127Tonight was all about Poo! 🙂 Ok, so technically it was about Toilet Twinning but by referring to poo it made all the Cubs chuckle! I challenge you to mention poo with a straight face! If you manage to do that… then watch the clip below…. and keep a straight face!

 

 

The sun was shining and it was a lovely evening outside so I decided to open “in horseshoe” as we do each week, but tonight outside on the grass in front of the church entrance. We talked briefly about the Tour De Phoenix Camp the previous weekend and serveral of the Cubs stood up to tell the Pack about things they enjoyed about the camp 🙂

As a humorous introduction to Toilet Twinning I opened the night by showing them this clip from Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang – (recommended watching)

Then, with a presentation from toilettwinning.org we talked a little about what it was about and why. The Pack split into two then for the remainder of the evening with half making Fundraising “spend a penny to flush away poverty” boxes to take home, and the other half playing some toilet-related games – the plan then to swap over half-way (though that didn’t quite work out).

Thanks to 7th Crawley for the Toilet roll ten-pin bowling idea which they did as part of their Toilet Twinning evening – great idea!

Our Cubs then took it one step further and played dodge ball…. with toilet rolls! Needless to say it went everywhere… 🙂

Watch this video to learn what Toilet Twinning is about and trying to do

We’ve planned to do this over a couple of Thursday evenings… so hopefully the Cubs will each have time to make a collection box. Lets see if we can raise the £60 to twin the toilet at the Church…?

 Did you know that Bear Grylls twinned his toilet in support of this project?

“Good sanitation, drinking water and keeping your hands clean are fundamental to communities. Yet consider this: 40% of the world’s population can’t take part in life’s adventures because they don’t have access to a toilet. Twinning your toilet is a fun and unique way of helping tackle this injustice. I’m in!”

 

And lastly… a big welcome to Rebecca who joined us at church for the first time (her first week with Cubs was actually at the Police visit the previous week!) We hope Rebecca enjoyed her evening with us and will come back again next week 🙂
