Lilly Help 24th Basingstoke Scout Group

Thanks to the generosity of 25 Lilly employees, who volunteered their time through Employee Volunteering, 24th Scout Group has had a much needed facelift.

The team removed nearly a ton of earth to rejuvenate the car park, removed foliage, sanded and painted windows, doors, and benches and disposed of plenty of rubbish and unwanted materials.

One of the volunteers enjoyed their day so much, that they have enquired about providing ongoing maintenance support to the Group!

24th Scout Group is our most in need Group, sitting in an area ranked in the bottom 20% most deprived in the country.

Establishing relationships like this is essential to ensuring the ongoing growth of the District, allowing potential volunteers the chance to try their hand. We are also thankful to Mike Webb for grasping the opportunity with both hands.
