Dailly Scout Group are celebrating following an award of £2,500 from the Hadyard Hill Community Benefit Fund to support their More Than Adventure Programme over the next year.
The award will help cover costs for six outdoor activity sessions including a beach BBQ, and a multi-activity overnight camp. The sessions will be organised and run by Girvan based Adventure Centre in Education (ACE).
Fiona de Faye Cub Leader said, “Dailly Scout Group would like to say a huge thank you to Hadyard Hill Community Benefit fund for supporting our More Than Adventure project over the next 12 months. As a result of this support, all members of our group, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers, will benefit from the experiences and challenges of a series of adventurous outdoor activity days. Learning by doing, we will be Gorge walking, paddle boarding, canoeing, mountain biking and hiking, with ACE, making the most of the coast and countryside we live in. Dailly Scouts are looking forward to an exciting year ahead.”
Gareth Shields, Community Investment Manager added: “It’s great to see the fund benefit young people in the community. SSE hope that many more community organisations across the three community council areas come forward to benefit from the fund.”
The Hadyard Hill Community Fund primarily supports projects located within or directly benefiting one or more of the three community council areas of Barr, Pinmore & Pinwherry and Dailly. The Fund is provided by SSE’s Hadyard Hill Wind Farm.
