Scouts line up charity Proms event

TALENTED scouts have come up with a novel way of celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Scouts from across the borough are to host a ‘Last Night of the Scout Proms’ on Friday, March 16, at Christ Church Parish Centre, North Shields, starting at 7.15pm.

District Commissioner Julia Stenhouse said: “Some of our leaders and supporters have outstanding talent and they will entertain with traditional proms music and we want the audience to join in, wave their union flags and thoroughly enjoy themselves.”

The Scout Active Support unit, who are organising the event, will split the proceeds between the Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Foundation and the Newcastle Motor Neurone Disease Care Centre at the Royal Victoria Infirmary.

Tickets, which include an interval drink, are only £5 and available from Esther on (0191) 257 7692.
