1st North Sydney Scouts Christmas Tree Fundraiser
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Speaker I want to recognise the 1st North Sydney Scouts for their work in harnessing the Christmas spirit in my electorate of North Shore with their sales of real Christmas trees. The trees are pre-ordered online and can be collected at the North Sydney Demonstration School. The tree sales are an annual event that is the biggest fundraiser for the club. The funds are used to support the Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, and Ventures to learn new skills and have fun in the safe and friendly environment of Scouting. 1st North Sydney scouts were established in 2009. Youth from Neutral Bay, McMahons Point, Kirribilli, Milsons Point and North Sydney come together for a varied program to build self-respect, confidence, leadership, and teamwork throughout various fun and engaging activities. This group has built a cohesive and robust base for young people to grow and flourish, and I thank the Manager, Robert Blayney, and the other Scout Leaders for their time and commitment to our young people. I wish the 1st North Sydney Scouts the best of luck with their fundraiser and continued work into the future.
