Scouts in Rugby are celebrating after landing a £500 windfall from the Heart of England Co-operative Society.

The cash has been used towards the purchase of a folding table and 30 chairs for the 11th Rugby (Admirals) Scout Group, based in Cornwallis Road, Bilton.

Steve Williams, assistant Scout leader, said the award had put the group almost a year ahead in terms of fundraising, which meant the children could now start to raise cash for other necessities.

The money will benefit some 60 Beavers, Cubs (pictured) and Scouts aged six to 14.
