“Happy New Year and thank you from all the Scouts in Salisbury and South Wiltshire for the support so many of you gave during 2021 helping us on our project to raise £150,000 to purchase a piece of land for a local permanent Scout camping and training ground.

With your help our total now stands at £88,000 of which at least £8000 was earned form the old Books, CD’s and foreign or out of date Coins and Notes which many of you kindly donated during 2021. We will still be collecting these during 2022.

Their must be many ex Scouts and Scouters out there who enjoyed the thrill of Camping in the great outdoors. One of them Gavin Parker ex 4th Salisbury (Harnham) heard of our project and contacted us. He enjoyed camping as a Scout so much he wants to make sure that today’s young people can continue to have the same experience and has made an offer to match fund up to 10 donations of £1000 from like-minded individuals.

If you can help us on our Camp Site Quest then please message me or you can make a donation at https://www.justgiving.com/salisbury-southwiltsscouts

Once again Thank you for your support and we wish you a very Happy and Healthy 2022″.
