Donations sought to help rebuild Berkswell Scout Hut

Solihull Editorial 15th Feb, 2017   0

A SCOUT troop are calling on kind-hearted Silhillians to help them hit their target to renovate a Scout Hut in Berkswell.

In September 2014 the Berkswell Scout Group launched a campaign to raise £400,000 to replace the current run-down 1960s Scout House.

The voluntary fundraising team have held a number of events, approached local businesses and charitable trusts and have raised over £300,000.

The build is due to start this summer but the team still need help to raise the £100K shortfall.

Bob Tabb, Group Scout Leader, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of local people and businesses.

“The funding already received means that we can get the basic structure built this summer.

“However, we still need to continue with our fundraising efforts in order to ensure that we can complete the project including the internal fixtures and fittings.”
