Help save our scout hut!
The 1st Shiplake Scout Group is
looking for funding to replace the roof on the Scout Hut which is leaking badly.
Binfield Heath and Shiplake parish councils will also be supporting the fund and the village Midsummer Music event at Holmwood on June 25th will make a donation from its proceeds.
Voting is open in stores throughout May and June. Customers can cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.
Scouting is the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation, changing lives by offering 6-14 year-olds fun and challenging activities. They enjoy unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others, making a positive impact in their community.
The community funding scheme sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to local community projects. The Bags of Help project has already delivered over £28.5 million to more than 4,000 projects up and down the UK. Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities. Anyone can nominate a project and organisations can apply online.
