Haverhill Scouts and Guides have taken a huge step towards raising the funds needed to restore their headquarters after a pre-Christmas bag-pack raised more than £1,500 for the group.
The youngsters were at Sainsbury’s Haverhill – the supermarket that has adopted the group’s fund raising effort as it’s community cause for the year – to help pack away their Christmas shopping on ‘Stampede Sunday’ (22).
Their efforts managed to raise £1,591.85 for their fund raising endeavour.
Explorer Scouts leader assistant Debbie Hodges said: “The bag packing went really well, and we’d like to thank everyone who supported us.”
The group is aiming to raise £130,000 for much-needed replacements for the existing two huts, with around £40,000 raised for the project already.
