She also brought along her torch from the 2012 Olympic relay for the pack to see.

Jade, who is a family member of one of the group’s leaders, happily volunteered her time to help the Cubs increased their fitness levels.

In the afternoon the Cubs enjoyed a game of mop hockey and sliding on tarpaulin followed by a super soaker fight. They rounded off the action-packed day with gadget making and pioneering.
