Save the children Den Day 29 May to 6 June

Post by martin2405 » Sun May 10, 2015 3:31 pm

Den day, children of all ages should have experienced at least one day in a Den in their lifetime, well now a new generation can experience a Den, Yorkshire section are looking to pursued a local land owner with 100 acres of woodland to host a Den day in aid of the save the children organisation.

From the web site it indicates children can build a Den and sleep in it over night, the web site says this can be outdoors or indoors, however us hardy northerners are going to arrange an out door Den, what we need is suitable children and supervising adults, we have to pick a suitable day/night to build and sleep in the Den/s

So, if any one wishes to take part in this please add your names to this post and add children and adults as necessary, apart from the Den building it is thought that the supervising adults will be out in the wild (albeit in tents) as long as the children are.

Children and adults will need to be self sufficient in terms of food and drink for the day, night and breakfast, hopefully this will be the Saturday/Sunday.

I am expecting the "information pack" from the organisers this week and will post further details as the rules and regulations become clear, suffice to say sponsorship will be at the top of the list LoL

So dependent on the land owners permission, sufficient children and supervising adults then all are welcome, the more the merrier.

Regards
Martin

Ok, save the children charity will be a few pounds richer at the end of the month.

The date is going to be the 30th of May 2015

Venue is going to be Parkwood off road centre, AKA Tong

Den building is from 6pm onwards, hopefully to be habital by nightfall at 9.30pm

Building materials are mainly woodland au natural, tarpaulins, pallets, any old bed sheets or other material you can provide with a view to accepting it may well be ruined.

And old white pillow case and suitable paint/ crayon / felt tip pen to decorate as a flag would be useful, as above don't expect vanish gold to restore it.

Sleeping in the dens by the children is a must, supervising adults make your own arrangements as necessary.

Everyone to be self sufficient in food and drinks

Sponsorship forms can be down loaded from the build a den day website,

http://denday.savethechildren.org.uk/fa ... downloads/

Copy and paste the link above, then download the sponsorship form, please encourage sponsor to tick the gift aid option for those eligible

If you can't make it to Parkwood then participate in your local area, your back garden or even indoors in your own house, pictures and sponsorship are a must, as are the children sleeping in the den overnight.

Yep, worked out a treat :lol: =D>
Between us we had enough gear to build a cracking shelter, even though the kids were technically supposed to build it themselves :lol:
I'm sure we'll have to do that again at some point =D>
