The 1st Chelford Scout Group would like to thank all who supported them in their bid to gain funding by voting for their project in the Aviva Community Fund competition.
This means a lot to all involved as they can now renew their hard-working but tired old kitchen.
The group were a prize winner in the "Up to £1000" category and are now looking forward to launching the kitchen refurbishment project.
1st Chelford Scout Group have worked extremely hard to bring about improvements in their HQ, including the replacement of the roof and this is another step along the way to improving the conditions for all the uniformed groups, their leaders, helpers and other community groups who use the building.
The nationwide initiative which launched in September called upon passionate local residents to submit a project close to their heart to be in with a chance of securing funding ranging from up to £1,000 to £25,000.
Each organisation had to galvanise the support of their local community to vote for their entry in six categories: health, disability and well-being; supporting the younger generation; supporting the older generation; sport in the community; environment (in association with The Mirror) and community support. Over 5 million votes were placed with over 450 projects benefitting overall.
1st Chelford Scouts are also very grateful to the Aviva Community Fund for their fantastic support
