SCOUTS: Fantastic fundraising

On behalf of the organisers of the Whitley Bay District Scouts’ book sale we would like to sincerely thank all those people who donated books and other items, and those who came along to the event and supported us.

A tremendous amount of hard work is undertaken by the helpers to ensure this event is successful and I would like to express my personal thanks to all those involved.

This year we raised over £5,550, which is a fantastic achievement. The funds will be used to maintain the district headquarters and continue to support the promotion of scouting and its activities in the local community.

Plans are already under way for next year’s event, which will take place during half-term in February 2018.
