FreshChoice Oxford chip in for Scout troop Jamboree
The Waimakariri Scout troop were delighted to receive a cheque for $500 from the new FreshChoice Supermarket in Oxford. Owner Mike said he was delighted to be able to contribute the sum as part of their monthly contribution to local community groups.
The troop are planning on sending 14 scouts to Blenheim to attend the Jamboree to be held at the end of the year. Leader Justin Fletcher said that the cost for each scout would be in the region of $1800, so there would be a lot of fund raising to be done before December. A number of fund raising events have already been planned the first of which is a Car Boot Sale and Car Wash, to be held on Sunday 14th February at Bright Horizons Preschool Car Park Oxford. The day starts at 9am, there will be sausages and coffee available to consume whilst you browse for bargains and wait for your car to be cleaned.
