A BOROUGH scout group has been given a cash boost.

The 21st Whitley Bay Scouts were last week handed a £400 cheque by Whitley Bay Rotary Club to fund the group’s work with the Ugandan charity Mityana Community Development Foundation and also to help cover the cost of repairs to the floor at its headquarters near Hillheads Park.

The African charity has been working in Mityana, Uganda for the last six years, developing a variety of projects in conjunction with people living there.

Rotary club president Alan Furness presented the cheque to members of the scouts at their headquarters on Tuesday.
