Support for campaigns of book selling, bag packing and carol singing helped the 6th Devizes Scout Group raise £3,000 at Sainsbury’s.

The group has thanked customers and staff of the supermarket in Devizes for raising the sum in a year.

Money also came in from flower donations and buckets on the tills.

Scout leader Scott Coleman said: “Our relationship has been a very fruitful one for the group.

“The Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and leaders have very much enjoyed working with the team, who have tirelessly worked to help us. We would like to say a huge thank you to every customer who has come through the store and donated something.

“The youngsters have very much enjoyed meeting you and have benefited from your financial support and will in the future.”
