Can you help Alzheimer Scotland to Stitch the Pitch?

4th May 2013

Alzheimer Scotland are attempting to complete a challenge and cover the Scottish National Football pitch at Hampden with 5000 metres of quilts made by quilters from around the world. They have asked if Scouting can assist them in helping to cover the pitch on Saturday 8th June 2013. Teams of Explorer Scouts, Scout Network members and adult volunteers would be needed to help them in laying and removing the quilts from the pitch and other practical tasks.

Assistance will be needed from 9.30am-4.30pm however this time can be split into shifts throughout the day.

This is an ideal opportunity to support a worthy Scottish charity and raise the profile of Scouting in the community. Please contact Karen Imrie at if you can help or for further information.
