Club comes to park’s aid with new equipment for Snapper camp.
BARNSTAPLE Rotary Club has done a good deed for the 12th North Devon Scouts Group.
The club was at the forefront of setting up the local pack nearly 80 years ago and has now helped out by supplying equipment for the camp facilities at Snapper.
Thanks to grant money from the Rotary charity shop in Boutport Street, the camp now has a new water boiler that is proving a far more convenient method than boiling water over an open fire.
Shop manager Penny Furseman said: “We are delighted to have been able to help by supplying equipment.

Money from the charity shop is still available to help fund eligible projects. Grant forms are available in the shop.
