Cans for Romania
Friday, March 25, 2016
PMS Diecasting has been collecting aluminium cans for the ‘Rotherham Explorer Scout Unit’ to help towards raising money for their International Expedition to Brasov, Romania in 2017.
George Panter, who is participating in the expedition with the Rotherham Explorer Scouts, popped in to pick up the first batch of collected cans.
“The aim of this event is to experience life in another country, travel using public transport, explore the beauty of the Carpathian Mountains and engage with a group of children living in a Children’s home in Ghimbav. Before the event we will work on our team building skills and increase our physical abilities as the trek in the mountains will be quite a challenge. When in Romania we will visit Bucharest and stay in the Children’s home, learning more about life in Romania and will be visiting the nearby Gypsy village.
This is an ongoing project that Rotherham Explorer Scouts have participated in twice already and they have supplied washing machines and kitchen equipment for the Children’s home which makes it so much easier for the staff working there.” he told us.
