Cash boost for scouts

STAFF from Bakers Dolphin in Weston swapped their coaches for a dragon boat to raise money for 1st Nailsea Scout Group.

The 16 rowers and one drummer sped through Bristol’s harbour in the dragon boat raise raising £4,000 for the scouts.

The 1st Nailsea Scout Group is currently fund-raising to replace its training and activity centre in Clevedon Road.

To help with the cause, Bakers Dolphin has adopted the group as its charity for the year. Amanda Harrington, sales and marketing director from the firm, said: “We know how important the 1st Nailsea Scout Group is to the town as there are 240 young people aged between six and 14 that use the centre. It is a wonderful facility for Nailsea and we are keen to support it in every way we can.”

Martin Weaver, chairman of the Friends of 1st Nailsea, said: “Bakers Dolphin has been supporting us for a year now and we are delighted with how much they have helped.

“The contribution they have made has been a real boost and greatly appreciated. Thank you to Amanda and the team for putting in such hard work to help us.”
