An Egg-cited Cub from Warwick has set his own Easter Egg trail around St Nicholas Park to help raise funds for his club’s new hut appeal.

Sam Underwood from 2nd Warwick Sea Scouts has laid the chocolatey trail with 10 questions as another way to help boost the profile of the appeal.

He said: “I am trying to raise money for the new Scout hut so I did a trail around the park.

To make it more fun I added in chocolate prizes.”

Trail sheets are £1 from Warwick Tea Rooms cafe and Warwick Boats for the next week.

The club is hoping to build a new site in the park and last month had a boost with a £2,000 donation from Calor Gas as teh latest businss to sign up to the fundraising partnership scheme.

The club has also passed its first phase of fundraising with £30,000 raised - and are now looking to a summer of activities to help bring in another £650,000 for the build.

Janette Eslick, volunteer fundraiser for the troop, said: “Calor Gas’s generous donation has helped to fund the final stages of planning for our HQ building.

“The firm’s funding will help us on our way to ensuring a sustainable future for 2nd Warwick Sea Scouts, enabling us to accommodate not just our current 170 members but also the 130 on the waiting list.”
