Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

SCOUTS got a rac­ing treat to thank them for their fundrais­ing ef­forts.

The 1st Hurds­field scout unit en­joyed a trip to one of big­gest in­door Scalex­tric tracks in the UK.

It was a re­ward for their hard work at a re­cent su­per­mar­ket bag pack at Sains­bury’s, where they raised £900 to­wards the up­keep of their scout hut.

Group chair­man Greg Carter said “The Beavers, Cubs and Scouts worked re­ally hard dur­ing the re­cent bag pack, help­ing with some pretty huge Christ­mas shops.

“We thought it would be nice to show our ap­pre­ci­a­tion, and they cer­tainly had a great time out.”

The chil­dren had a few prac­tice goes on the huge eight-lane track be­fore tak­ing part in time tri­als, where the fastest three were cho­sen.

Group Scout leader War­ren Tyler said: “We had a lovely time – it’s al­ways good to see the smiles.

“It takes a lot of hard work to keep our scout hut and minibus on the road so the bag packs are a life­line.

“We had a great turnout for the hard work, so it was nice to re­ward them with this.”
