Freemasons make donation to Ashworth Valley Scout Camp

Just under £5000 was presented to the Ashworth Valley Scout Camp on Wednesday 22nd March 2017. The donation was to fund the fitting of a heating system in one of the camping buildings on the site. Stuart Ashworth, who is a volunteer at the site, submitted the application on their behalf. When the heating is fitted they will put a plaque up acknowledging the assistance from the ELMC.

The back row, from left to right, are Ian Moriarty (volunteer), John Carney (Chairman), Steve Holland, Doug Sutton (Camp Warden) and Stuart Ashworth who is a volunteer at the site. The front row are kids from the 12th Heywood Scout Group, one of the many groups of children from Bury and Rochdale that benefit from the excellent facilities provided at the camp.
