4th Mansfield Woodhouse Scout Group can be prepared for camping
4th Mansfield Woodhouse scout group have been awarded £500 from our Community Support Scheme to purchase new tents.
The scout group is a vibrant association, holding Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sessions five nights a week with approximately 160 members. Scouting offers young people the chance to have fun, build their confidence and friendships through a wide range of activities. The donation has enabled the group to purchase five tents, which will sleep at least four scouts.
Phil Pogmore, Akela of the 4th Mansfield Woodhouse scout group said “We have lots of young people attending our Scout, Cubs and Beaver sessions. The donation from The Mansfield will give more of our members the opportunity to join our camping trips and become fully immersed in the scouting experience. Having a local business supporting us is invaluable and with care and attention the tents will last for many years to come.”
Dale Twigger, Marketing Manager at the Society, visited the 4th Mansfield Woodhouse scout group and said “The young people who take part in the group are very enthusiastic and engaged in all the activities. We’re delighted to be supporting an organisation that teaches the value of team work, determination and having fun. I am proud of our Community Support Scheme and how positively it can impact many young people’s lives.”
