Scouts from East Kilbride raise funds for children’s charity close to their hearts
7th June 2017
Beaver Colonies from the 1st East Kilbride Scout group took part in a sponsored walk around Heritage Loch recently to fundraise for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity (GCHC) in support of a fellow Scout.
The Group raised over £1,200 for the charity who is close to their heart having looked after fellow Scout Jack Tennick who had open heart surgery at the Royal Hospital for Children earlier in the year.
Mark Campbell, Beaver leader for East Kilbride Scouts said, 'I am very proud of all of our Beavers, leaders, parents, committee members and local community for supporting our sponsored walk.' He continued, 'it was our small way of thanking all of the tremendous work they do at Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and for the care and attention Jack received before during and after his operation.'
The walk raised £1,219.00 for the charity and the cheque was presented at 1st East Kilbride Scouts Spring Fayre.
