Scouts seek grant
Morley Scout Group is looking to revamp its kitchen, which has not been upgraded for more than 10 years.
MORLEY Scout Group leader Barbara Hunt is seeking funds from the City of Bayswater to upgrade its kitchen in a bid to cater for more members.
The 61-year-old group is applying for a grant from Better Bayswater – a program supporting community groups and non-for-profit organisations – worth $5000.
Mrs Hunt and her husband Steve joined the group in 1983 before their daughter and grandson also became scouts.
Mrs Hunt said the group needed to replace its fridge and stove in its hall at Pat O’Hara Reserve.
She said the group had about 35 members aged from six to 18 years and eight leaders.
“A lot of them (kids) suffer with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and autism… our granddaughter, who has cerebral palsy, is in a wheelchair,” Mrs Hunt said.
“We teach them not only the physical side of things but there is the spiritual side and we touch briefly on that.
“I can’t see myself retiring for a long time yet.”
The group meets every Friday from 5.30pm to 8.30pm.
