Scouts raise more than £1,000 for campaign
by Tom Martin

CROSBY District Scouts have raised £1,100 through a raffle which will go towards their ongoing campaign to carry out £30,000 worth of work to their Welsh based hut.

The youngsters managed to raise the amount through a recent raffle and it will be added to the ever-growing pot of funds which is to be spent on their hut in Llansannan.

A spokesperson for the Crosby District Scouts said: “We are planning to complete £30,000 worth of improvements to make the hut even better. The fundraising campaign is being run by a dedicated group of parents who have seen the value in scouting.

”Crosby Scouts have owned the hut for many years and it is used by a variety of scout groups from all over the country. We also let the Chernobyl Project, which provides summer holidays in the UK to those children affected by the Chernobyl disaster, use the hut for free as part of our commitment to give something back.

“It is also used for parent and child camps, by scout and guide groups and is an ideal base to explore North Wales.

”We would like to thank those businesses who provide prizes including Hotel Indigo, the Pioneer in Crosby and the Ayuthaya Thai Restaurant. Without their support the raffle would not have been the big success it was.“
