Saughall Scout Hut gets donations from the local Co-op

A Scout Hut devastated by fire earlier in 2015 has recieved a support from the local Co-op. The newly-opened Saughall Scout Hut was given a “grand” donation from The Co-op as volunteers continue their work to refurbish the popular community facility.

The £1,000 donation was presented to the Scout Hut Committee by Francis Asgill, Manager of the Co-op food store in Saughall, during an event at the Hut (Wednesday, 25 November) to say “thank you” to a number of the volunteers, trades people and local organisations who helped to make the restoration of the Hut possible.

Tony Summers, Chair of The Scout Hut, said: “The generosity and kindness of the community and local organisations has been over-whelming, from fundraising events, to donations of time and trades, we cannot say ‘thank you’ enough to everyone who has helped.”

Francis Asgill, Manager of the Co-op food store in Saughall – which itself recently re-launched following a major makeover, said: “As a community retailer we were keen to play our part and help to restore this popular facility which means so much locally and, makes a big difference, to local life. We would like to thank all of our customers who contributed.”
