Local scout club improves the learning experiences for young people

Published 9 November 2018

A WDH Community Grant has helped the 17th Wakefield Scout Club to buy essential kits for expeditions. 

The Club spent the grant, amounting to almost £1,000, on 20 Trangia camping stoves and cooking kit.

The club plans to  use the equipment with all of the people that attend from Beavers to Scouts.

Laura Lovell-Cotton, Scout Leader said: “We introduce fire safety and camp cooking to Beavers, aged 6 to 8. Our Cubs, aged 8 to 10, learn how to use Trangias safely and cook simple meals, as well as the importance of good maintenance to keep kit working well.”

“When our older scouts and explorers go off on hikes and expeditions we don’t have to worry about a shortage of equipment, which is fantastic. These stoves should last for years, if not decades, so have been a fantastic purchase for the group. We are extremely grateful to WDH for the grant to be able to do this as it will benefit hundreds of local children for many years to come.”

Chris Croxall, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer said: “The club provides a great deal of fun and educational activities for young people to do and WDH is pleased to support them.
