MONKSHOUSE Scouts and Guides are the latest group to benefit from our partnership with Spalding and District Round Table.

MONKSHOUSE Scouts and Guides are the latest group to benefit from our partnership with Spalding and District Round Table.

We’ve teamed up with the Round Table to launch the Smile Fund, with £10,000 worth of cash up for grabs to bring cheer to good causes across the district.

Cub scout leader Christine Gratton applied to the fund on behalf of the Monkshouse Scout and Guide Headquarters Building Committee.

In her letter Christine said: “Our building was built about 25 years ago and has reached the stage where a certain amount of maintenance is required.

“The biggest problem is the boiler which two weeks ago finally broke down for good and was condemned.

“Due to this being the coldest time of year, we had to move quickly to ensure there was heating in the building for the young people to continue meeting.

“We secured loans to cover the cost of a new boiler and to bring the heating system up to date.

“A new boiler has been installed and is now up and running but we need to repay the £2,350 loan.”

The Round Table Smile Fund committee has awarded £250.
