Scouts roof appeal gets a £1,000 boost from local firm
Scouts have reveived a £1,000 donation this week towards
the cost of replacing the damaged roof of their HQ.
here last year, the group is in a "desperate" need
to replace the leaking roof on its building at Burnham's BASC
sports ground, but it needs £20,000 to carry out the work.
Rendell, Chairwoman of Burnham Scouts, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"We are hugely grateful to the Co-Operative Funeral Care
in Burnham for coming forward with this superb donation of £1,000
to help the project."
a thank you, our Cubs, Beavers and Scouts have made a number of
World War 1 themed items for a display in the Co-Op's window over
Barton from Co-Operative Funeral Care in Adam Street said: "We
are a new business wanting to help our community and when we heard
about the Scouts' plight we agreed to help."
Scouts need a further £16,500 to replace the roof, which
is deteriorating quickly. "The protective paint on the roof
is peeling away, leaving holes and patches of damp and moisture
coming through," said Sarah Rendell who added that several
fundraising events are being planned over coming months.
