A successful pitch to The Co-operative’s Community Fund has enabled 1st Hadfield Scout Group to buy six new tents.

The cash boost of almost £2,000 has been made by The Co-operative Membership Community Fund which supports local causes.

The grant enables the scout group, which caters for around 75 young people aged 5-18, to buy six group tents, each sleeping eight people and including a standing area where the scouts and their equipment can keep dry.

Ian Bailey, of 1st Hadfield Scout Group, said: “We couldn’t be more pleased, it is exactly what we need. This grant from The Co-operative will make a huge difference to our group.”
