Stithians Scouts have a new HQ!

Stithians Scout Group built their new wooden hut after being awarded £5,000 earlier this year, and look at the fantastic results! Congratulations to everyone who worked on the project.

Get in touch if you have pictures of your newly developed Scout Hut too!

A Place to Build

There was only one Main Prize of £100,000 to be won - and this was by far the most difficult decision. There were dozens of groups who demonstrated a very high degree of need, hours of dedication and creativity and a great deal of thought in their application. However, through a fair and thorough selection process the winners have been picked, and they are the Woodhouse Eaves Group in Loughborough! 

This group have been homeless for two years, and have carried on Scouting throughout this period by moving from place to place and storing all of their equipment across cupboards, cars and parents' outbuildings. This money will mean that they can finally have a home of their own, strengthening the community and providing a space that everyone can enjoy.

A Place to Repair

For meeting places that needed some care and attention, lucky groups also won a prize of £10,000, and those groups were Columbus Bellahoj Explorer Scout Unit, 1st Bushey Heath Group, the 2nd Clutton Scout Group, the North Down District Explorers and Bearsted Scout Group.

A Place to Equip

Six further prizes of £5,000 were up for grabs, and these winners were 27th Lincoln Scout Group, 7th Huddersfield Clayton West Scout Group, 77th Glasgow Disabled Scout Group, 7th Lichfield Scout Group, 7th Bolton Moorland Scout Group and Stithian Scouts.

So a huge THANK YOU to everyone for entering!
