Scouts get Co-op cheque

A SCOUT group gathered to receive a check from the Co-op as part of the firm’s scheme to give to local causes.

Scouts, Beavers and Cubs from the 2nd Stubbington (Holy Rood) Scout Group met at the Stubbington branch of the Co-op to receive a cheque for £3,739 from staff.

Group Scout leader Brian Graham said: ‘We are really thankful to the Stubbington Co-op and the people of Stubbington for giving us this generous donation.

‘We will be using it to install a new heating system in our hall – just in time for winter.

‘We have 70 young people we provide activities for every week but we are short of leaders and helpers. With more we could allow more young people to participate.’
