A spokesperson for the group said: “It was a great occasion and wonderful to have such a great turn out. Well done all who took part in the service.”

Also recently, Scouts Emma Adams and Emma Weir helped out at Ballymena Foodbank. They decided they wanted to raise both awareness for the service and help in a more practical level and put together a presentation for their Troop, explaining how the charity works and asking them to each donate some money. They then completed an online shop which they presented to representatives from St Columba’s Church, Les Hughes and St Clair Beatty, who volunteer at the Foodbank.
