Henry Richards was always an active member of the troop and used to enjoy the annual Christmas tree shredding fundraiser. However in the past few years the group has been unable to hire a shredder to dispose of the trees so had to burn them instead. Henry approached his boss Bruce Smith of Sid Valley Tree Surgery & Landscapes to see if they could assist.

Sid Valley Tree Surgery jumped at the chance to assist Beer Scouts with the fundraiser and provided the high powered shredder and truck.

Nigel Groves Scout Leader said “It’s so rewarding when you see a young person gain an interest through scouting then go on to peruse a career in that field , and then come back to help the group is fantastic. We are very thankful to Bruce and Henry for helping us raise nearly £300 in our annual fundraiser.”
