Our monthly Newspaper & Cardboard collections gathered a mammoth 29.5 tons in 2013 raising a fantastic £2,500 for the young people in the Group.
All the money raised by the Scouts & Explorer Scouts who help at the monthly collections helps subsidise their camps & activities throughout the year.
Said Bruce MucKelt 'pounds4paper' organiser "This is a fantastic achievement, the Scouts & Explorers are able to directly see the benefit from the effort they put in, the challenge for 2014 is to continue the success of the last 4 years and to achieve 40 tons next year!
In October 2014 we collected the most ever 6.1 tons against a monthly average of 2.4 tons.
