Scouts need helping hand

The 1st Table View Scouts are looking for donations to upgrade their hall in Hof Street, Table View.

Built more than 30 years ago, the hall is used for weekly meetings, projects, community services and, on occasion, social events.

Tina Powell who runs the 1st Table View Scouts group’s fundraising portfolio, says the hall is in need of a number of renovations including refurbishing the floor and upgrades to the fireplace.

“We would like people to buy a brick for R100. Each person who buys a brick will have their name etched on a stick-on-brick which will be displayed in the hall,” said Ms Powell.

She said people could buy as many bricks as they wanted to. The money raised would also go toward ropes, poles and camping equipment.
