Walter Shave, one of Volunteers at First Halesworth Scout Group, who also works at Axis, reported to the Axis Foundation that the Group’s Scout Hall facilities including the kitchen and toilet areas, could do with a refurbishment.

The Axis Foundation donated £5,000 to help refurbish the Scout Hall. The improvements include replacing the corrugated flat roof – as the kitchen, toilet and kitchen areas are greatly damaged by leaks – fully refurbishing the toilet and cloakroom facilities and replacing rotting flooring.

The local community uses the hall too, so the benefits will be felt by many local people who regard the Scout Group, which recently celebrated its Centenary, as a vital part of the rural Halesworth community.

“Thank you so much for your amazing contribution. The refurbishment will benefit both existing members and future members as well as other organizations” – First Halesworth Scout Group

About First Halesworth Scout Group

As members of the Suffolk-based First Halesworth Scout Group, boys and girls (6 ½-18) and young adults (18-25) learn many life skills, an appreciation of nature and respect for the world around them.

They engage in activities including climbing, camping, first aid, Duke of Edinburgh’s awards, archery and air rifle shooting, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, hill walking, international travel, to name but a few.
