Scouts help Santa to raise £500 for Charity

Well done to the Scouts who braved the freezing conditions last Friday to help Ilkley Round Table and Santa to raise funds for local good causes.
The Scouts did a fantastic job supporting the annual Santa Float as it made its way round the streets of Ben Rhydding. The Round Table said the Scouts had been very well behaved and a credit to the Troop. They were delighted the Scouts had helped raise the fantastic sum of over £500. Well done to all involved.
