Fundraising success at Tesco

February has been another excellent month of fundraising for us. At the beginning of February Consett and Blackhill scouts took part in bag packing at the new Tesco store in Consett. After seven hours of hard work by the scouts packing groceries we had raised an excellent £669. Thank you to all the scouts and adults who took part.

Just a week later we heard that we had been awarded £500 from Tesco Consett Helping Hand charity donations. Thank you to everyone who completed nomination forms for us.

With these funds going towards the new headquarters, we are now 85% of the way there and just need a further £40,000 to finish; so quite literally every little helps.
