New scout gear thanks to grant

Have your say

A DISTRICT scout group is £500 better off thanks to Lincolnshire Co-operative.

The donation to South Holland Explorer Scouts will help replace old camping tents, maps and equipment for both teaching and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

The cheque from the company’s Community Dividend Grant was presented by Matt Brown, manager of the Long Sutton Co-op.

The explorer scouts meet at Holbeach and Spalding, from 7pm to 9pm on Thursdays. For more details call 07900 903694.
