“But the real way to get happiness is by giving out happiness to other people. Try and leave this world a little better than you found it and when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you have not wasted your time but have done your best.”
― Robert Baden-Powell

Darren Van Der Merwe, Patrol Leader of this patrol has another initiative coming up on 28 April 2018 and has made the following appeal:
Dear Sir / Madam
I am approaching you to humbly ask for your help . I am 12 years old and have a vision and that vision is to feed other kids as I believe I can make a change in this community . Now growing up in a area like Lavender Hill where you wake up with sounds of guns shots . As I am only 12 and a grade 7 learner at Sullivan Primary school and patrol leader of the Buffalo patrol at 1st Steenberg Scouts are appealing to businesses to please assist me . My aim is to make 300 sandwiches served with a fruit and a glass of cooldrink on Saterday 28th April 2018. I would like to serve on the bread polony , cheese with mayonnaise.
I also want to have no charge fun day where the kids can play soccer , jumping castles , cricket as that is what our community need .
Todays youth tomorrows future !
