Sea Scouts car wash nets £100
7:40am Wednesday 16th October 2013 in News
ORGANISERS of a scouts’ charity car wash have raised £100 towards the renovation of their scout hut.
A team of 15 youngsters from First Swindon Sea Scouts spent Saturday washing cars at Swindon Mitsubishi in Paddington Drive, Bridgemead.
The hard-working team of cubs, beavers and scouts aim to raise £150,000 for the renovation of their HQ at The Wick, in Haydon Wick.
Bryan McGaw, Group Scout Leader, said: “We are very grateful Swindon Mitsubishi gave us the chance to put this fundraiser on and the kids had a great time.
“Fundraising events like this are the only way we are going to achieve our aim of renovating the scout hut.”
Andy Jackman, brand manager at Swindon Mitsubishi, said: “We were more than happy to help our local scouts and we’re glad they were able to raise some money.
“It was great to see the youngsters so keen to do a good job and we wish them well in reaching their target.”
The scout group has 65 members – boys and girls aged six to 14. It is now thinking about other ways of raising money.
