Elmswell Scouts get lottery cash for adventure project

Have your say

Elmswell Scout Group has received £4,641 from The Big Lottery fund towards updating its equipment for camps and excursions.

The funding goes towards the £6,301 cost of the project which is called Enabling Adventure, Ingenuity and Personal Achievement Through Scouting.

Ben Savill, group leader, said: “The success of our bid is a fitting endorsement of the excellent work we are doing for young people in our communities.

“The new equipment will make it easier for us to run our weekend and longer camps for the current cohort of young people and more in the future.

Elmswell Scout Group, which serves the area around Elmswell and Woolpit, is more than 20 years old and last year was one of the fastest growing Scout groups in Suffolk. It has Beavers, Cubs and Scouts with about 25 members in each.
