Kind-hearted scouts who gave their own funds to a care home have been awarded £1,000 to help buy a much-needed boiler for their scout hall.
The 44th Nottingham Scout Group received the donation from Persimmon Homes Nottingham, thanks to its Community Champions scheme.
The funds will go towards a brand-new boiler for the scout hall on Lincoln Street, Basford.
Scout Leader Steven Peacock said: “We are in desperate need of a new boiler for both heating and hot water. In normal circumstances, we would host stalls at local events to raise the funds, but this is currently not possible.
“Earlier this year we chose to give a donation of our funds to Acer Court Care Home to help support days out for the elderly. Although the Scout Group needed the money, we felt it was important that our members understood that we can continue to work for what we need and it’s important to give funds to those whose needs are greater.
“We are keen to get the Scout HQ fully functional with an efficient boiler and hot water, for hand washing, so that we can be ready to welcome our members back and continue our work in the community. Persimmon Homes is very much helping to make this possible.”
Neil Follows, Managing Director of Persimmon Homes Nottingham, said: “It was a delight to receive an application from such a selfless bunch of young people. The Community Champions is all about supporting the communities where we are building, and we feel the 44th Nottingham Scout Group is very much a deserving group to support.”
