Help Make Child Poverty History
No one should go hungry in this day and age, especially children whose entire development and future potential depends on their health and nutrition. Every child deserves to have the essentials of clean water, health care and basic education. Our goal is to take the necessary steps to end child poverty – one child, one village at a time.
Having started as a corporate outreach program in 2004, Make Child Poverty History is now an ongoing global initiative encompassing individuals and organizations outside of the founding corporation. We consider ourselves a catalyst – a group of like-minded individuals and corporations who know that the suffering of children can be made a thing of the past if more people joined this campaign and shared in our mission.
Collectively, we try to find out who are the best charities, monitor charity ratings around the world, encourage and facilitate charitable donation gift ideas and participate in third world child sponsorship programs. We support the organizations that are best equipped to provide sustenance, education, health care, advance the building of infrastructure and campaign for the eradication of poverty.
WSI work with local charities to help local children grow, learn and experience the best things in life.
46th Northampton (Overstone) Scout Group
Incorporating 48th Northampton (Great Billing) Beaver Scouts
The 46th Northampton Scout Group caters for young people aged between 6 and 14 years of age in the Blackthorn, Rectory Farm, Ecton Brook, Great Billing and Overstone and other local areas close to our headquarters in Northampton who wish to try something new and exciting. We pride ourselves on challenging our young people to achieve things they may never otherwise have the opportunity to do. Camping, rifle shooting, archery, canoeing, climbing, abseiling, cooking, games, arts, crafts, challenges and competitions are just some of the things the Group takes part in.
Our headquarters are at Overstone Scout Activity Centre, Billing Gate, Billing Lane, Northampton, NN6 0AF
Our camps are often held at Overstone to keep costs to a minimum, but the Group has camped in Wales, Windsor, Weymouth and London at the Headquarters of Scouting at Gilwell Park where larger organised activities can be run. Individual Scouts have represented the Group at the World Jamboree in Thailand and the Centenary Jamboree held in England in 2007 as well as a tall ship experience at Ocean Explorers in 2008.
Our Group offers the opportunity for individuals to develop into responsible young adults, not just by taking part in the adventurous activities as mentioned above, but by giving them the opportunity to socialise within the group at our regular meetings, but also outside the Group at other fun Scouting events that are held locally, nationally and sometimes internationally.
Scouting can really open doors!
The Group also has opportunities for adults who wish to take part in Scouting. We are always looking for new Leaders to assist within the three sections. No experience necessary, but a sense of fun and adventure an advantage!
Panthers Football Club
Black Panthers include three football teams who are: Black Panthers Black under 16s’, Black Panthers White under 16s’ and Black Panthers under 15s’. The groups train and play independantly, however they also benefit from joint social events and fun days; making us a great group to be a part of.
We are proud of all our players, and promote fun and fitness within the disciplines of football with FIFA rules.
