Support for book sale is appreciated

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 for our annual event and to those who came along to the sale and supported us.

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

Once again this year we raised in excess of £5,000 which is a fantastic achievement.

The funds will be used to maintain the district headquarters and to 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 the school half term week in February 2015.
