Scout groups chance to win cash

LOCAL Scout groups have just a few more weeks to tell WD-40 how they have used their DIY and Scouting skills to make a difference to their community in return for a cash prize.

WD-40, the multi-use product, is supporting its sponsorship of the Scout Association’s DIY Activity Badge with a cash prize for the winning troop and entries need to be received by Tuesday 7 June to stand a chance of winning.

Scout Groups across the UK are invited to tell WD-40 about community clean-up projects such as cleaning up a local park, helping clean up with a litter pick or redecorating and freshening up a community centre or Scout hut.

The winning group will be awarded £500 to use for equipment, materials or resources for their group.

WD-40’s brand manager, Amy Long, said: “We know there are many Scout Groups up and down the country that are making a big difference in their community using their Scouting and DIY skills to help others. We want to celebrate those good examples and reward the youngsters for their efforts.”

Scout groups wishing to enter the competition can email WD40@connect-group.com or call 01902 714957 to explain their clean up or community project. Entries will be hosted online at http://wd40Scouts.blogspot.com and all entries received will receive a WD-40 goody bag for their group.
