1st Newport Scouts have been doing some considerable fund raising to improve their scout hut which was looking very run down.
With the help of local charities, businesses, the children, the leaders, parent volunteer’s and various others they have managed to raise enough money for a new roof but they now need new windows. The ones in the hut are very old and in a very poor state, some have holes in them.
One thing they have been doing is collecting empty crisp packets for re-cycling, they get paid a small amount of money for the empty packets but have so far managed to raise approx. £52.00. Clearly the lovely thing about this is that it is dual purpose as it helps raise some money but is also environmentally friendly.
