On Wednesday 26th November the Scout & Guide Association organised a meal in the China Brasserie at Fairford Leys to raise funds. A convivial evening was enjoyed by 45 people. A total of £350 was raised for the Association's coffers, including £150 from a raffle of prizes that had been generously donated.
The Association Chairman, Richard Kendall, reported that the extra funds would help towards the cost of replacement entrance doors at the Scout & Guide Centre and also contributions to each of the eight village units — rainbows, brownies, guides, beavers, cubs and scouts — for their Christmas activities with the young people.
