Scouts donate to community garden
The caretakers of the Woy Woy Peninsula Community Garden received a donation of $300 from Gosford District Scouts and the First Woy Woy Sea Scouts.
Broken Bay Scouts Joey leader Ms Kerrie Boxsell said the funds were raised during the Scouts celebration of Founders Day in February, which coincides with the birthday of Baden Powell, who founded the Scouting movement.
The Scouts delivered a cheque for $300 to the garden volunteers on May 20.
Ms Boxsell said both Scouting groups had undertaken outings to the garden in the past and decided to donate the funding after hearing of the recent arson attacks which caused significant damage to garden facilities and disrupted its day-to-day operations.
