Thinking Day

posted 25 Apr 2013, 11:44 by St. Thomas' Church Aboyne

The annual Thinking Day event for the local guiding and scouting movement was held at St Thomas’s this year. The event was attended by about 50 Rainbows, Brownies, Beavers, Cubs, Guides, Scouts and Rangers, when we learned about the importance of Fair Trade for rice growers in Malawi. 

Flags were brought in at the beginning, accompanied by some African singing. We also did some improvised dancing. Everyone was busy doing the activities - which were to learn about the farmers in Malawi. A great time was had by all! 

I sold rice grown by the farmers - at the latest count, I have sold 82 bags. If I get to 90, then that will pay for a child of a farmer to go to school for a year.
