We received two early Christmas presents in the form of donations towards the New Hut Appeal . The first was on Wednesday 20th December; Andrew Retter, a Director of Fassnidge Trust, presented a cheque for £1,000 from the Trust at the Group’s December Committee Meeting. In his address, Andrew said that most of the charitable work done by the Trust is directed towards the elderly, but they also reserve some of their funds for especially deserving Youth Projects. Andrew has a long association with 1st Northwood Scouts.
Then on Saturday 23rd December, One Stop, the grocery store in the centre of Northwood, presented a cheque for £2,000 as part of the Carriers for Causes scheme. The cheque was presented by Karishma Mehta on behalf of the store, and was accepted by Mike Bennett, Group Scout Leader.
