I taught my mum new songs

This year we are celebrating 100 years of Cubbing worldwide! Many Cubs, parents, Cub Packs, Scout Groups, Districts and Regions have had fun whilst remembering the impact Cubbing has had on their lives . We spoke to Oarabetse Legegeru (9) from 5th St. Peter’s Cub Pack in the Free State about the joy that is Cubbing.
