Penyffordd Scouts have received £1800 thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
The funding boost from People’s Postcode Trust will enable more members of Penyffordd Scouts to take part in a variety of water activities throughout the year.
People’s Postcode Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. 55p from every £2 ticket goes to support good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
Andrea Dixon, Group Scout Leader of Penyffordd Scout Group said ‘The grant has been a fantastic help to the group and means that more young people than ever can try canoeing. The new equipment has been well received by the Scouts who all love the bright colours.”
Adventure is at the heart of Scouting and Penyffordd Scouts have always taken part in water activities as part of their varied programme.
13 year old Scout Sammy Bakewell said ‘The new equipment is great and much more comfortable than the old stuff, I really enjoy canoeing with Scouts and cant wait to do more in the future”
