Scouts and Beavers in Llanidloes have launched a fundraising appeal to help cover maintenance costs and activity trips.

Members of the 1st Llanidloes Scout group aim to raise £500 to support their activities as government lockdown restrictions continue to ease.

Scout leader Hazel Groom said: “Before lockdown my Scout group had been planning fundraisers to help cover costs for general every day scouting and also camping trips and activity trips.

“However due to Covid-19 we have been unable to proceed with our fundraisers and need a tiny boost for when we are able to come back for face-to-face meetings.

“If you are able to help in any way I know the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts would very much appreciate it.”
