Great Amwell Scouts will be at the Asda store in Ware on Saturday, December 2 aiming to add to the fantastic amount of £1,000 they have already raised for Herts Young Homeless.

The eager scouts are at the store to help busy shoppers pack their bags in return for donations.

In July, 20 scouts took part in a sponsored cardboard box sleepout and another did a sponsored mini-triathlon.

hyh’s Education Team visited the scouts to talk about how homelessness affects young people and where to get support if it is something they are ever worried about.

This has been a great opportunity for our scouts to learn about the problems young people can face, to know help is available, and for them to do their bit to help,” said Assistant Scout Leader Graham.
