Cash will go to new scout hut
A SCOUT group that is marking its 110th anniversary this year is also planning ahead for the future.
Members of he Third Upton Priory Scouts are trying to collect the £60,000 needed to have a new Scout hut built as the current one is in a poor state of repair.
They will be holding a fundraising quiz night at Mottram Village Hall on January 19 and ahead of this have received a welcome boost.
Audi Macclesfield has donated a selection of prizes for the event, to add to ones already handed over by Mottram Hall, Shrigley Hall and from Lancashire County Cricket Club.
Cath Harland, from the Third Upton Priory Scouts, said: “Without the support from Audi Macclesfield and their dedicated staff team, in particular the head of business Tom Koutsavakis and Matt Lennon the sales manager, this amazing prize draw would not be possible in helping raise the £60,000 target that is required.”
Anyone else who is interested in supporting the prize draw can get tickets from the Scout hut, on Phoenix Street, or to donate visit www. justgiving.com/ crowdfunding/3rdmacc.
