The Fifth Ballymena Scout Troop recently took part in a Sponsored Canoe Camp to raise funds for one of their own.

They were raising money for their Scout, Ellie Hughes, who is taking part in the 24th World Scout Jamboree which is being held in West Virginia, USA, next year.

Scouts hold some of the items of rubbish they collected during the litter pick they carried out while taking part in a Sponsored Canoe Camp. They have extended a  big 'thank you' to Sainsburys and Lidl who kindly gave them provisions for the weekend and to Crosskeys Meats who donated the sausages and burgers for the end of trip BBQ.
