Pub gives scouts a boost
Monday, 26th March, 2018
The Silverton Hotel has donated $500 to the Sea Scouts to help them attend their Jamboree next year.
To have four Sea Scouts and two leaders attend the Jamboree at Talem Bend, SA in January it will cost about $10,000.
The Scouts’ Trevor Dart said the donation from the Hotel owner’s Peter and Patsy Price was very helpful.
This event is the biggest gathering of Scouts throughout Australia.
It is held once every three years and will see 13,000 - 15,000 Scouts from all over attend.
Trevor said they will be busy fundraising for the year to ensure the kids can head to the event.
Peter and Patsy said they were happy to help out.
“We raised funds from our Recovery Day after St Pat’s,” Peter said.
“And every year we donate to a different cause.
“This year we picked the Sea Scouts.
“They were involved in our music festival and catering for our recovery day.
“It’s great to see young people getting involved and we thought we should help out.”
