Car wash to fund scout hut
7:40am Friday 11th October 2013 in News
YOUNGSTERS will take part in a charity car wash to raise money to renovate their scout hut tomorrow.
Swindon Mitsubishi, in Paddington Drive, Bridgemead, will host the event for the First Swindon Sea Scouts from 10am.
Cubs, beavers and scouts will wash cars in return for a donation, with all the money going towards a £150,000 renovation of their headquarters at The Wick, in Haydon Wick.
Andrew Jackman, brand manager at Swindon Mitsubishi, said: “We’re more than happy to help our local scouts and we hope people will make the most of this event.
“The scout leaders do great work with the youngsters and we know they will do a top job of cleaning the cars. This is a great opportunity for people to support a worthy cause while bringing the shine back to their cars.”
The showroom will provide all the materials.
Bryan McGaw, group scout leader, said: “We hope there’s a good turn out. We keep the kids off the streets and teach them values that will help them in adult life.
“We’re really grateful to Swindon Mitsubishi for their support.”
