Scouts help Santa to raise £500 for Charity

   |   By

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.
