Doing a good deed is something all Cubs learn about as part of the Cubbing programme both locally and internationally. As members of the Scouting Movement we all strive to be Messengers of Peace, which is exactly what Kabelo Maretele (10) and his fellow Cubs from 5th Peter’s Cub Pack in the Free State have embraced.
