Ilford scouts do a good turn for Norwood

29 March 2016

Members of the 3rd Ilford North Scout Group gave guests a Michelin star experience when they served up a three course lunch to raise money for Norwood. The lunch was held in the Parish Hall at Holy Trinity Church, Barkingside and raised £350. The Scouts themselves took on the mantle of maître d's, greeting customers, taking orders and even cleaning up at the end.

Group Scout Leader Colin Wreyford and Parent Representative Marc Palmer said: "Each Saturday a different church group hosts a lunch to raise money for a local charity. Having consulted with the Scouts, the common theme was to raise funds for children. As a committee we felt that Norwood fitted the bill as it supports vulnerable children and their families and has a local presence in the Ilford area."
