Funding Awarded to 1st Sarisbury Scout Troop

The 1st Sarisbury Green Scout Troop has been awarded �400 to buy four Trangias (Light weight cookers).

The cookers will be used by the scouts when undertaking two day expeditions whilst working towards their Expedition Challenge Badges. To gain the Expedition Challenge badge the scouts must participate in a two day expedition; this includes carrying all their kit on their backs and camping overnight. These trips require lightweight camping equipment, through fundraising the scouts have been able to purchase some lightweight tents but requested funding to purchase the four Trangias.

Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Se�n Woodward, said: "I'm very pleased that we are able to fund the project, as the 1st Sarisbury Scouts provide excellent scouting activities".
