Selco Helps Give run-down Scout Campsite a Facelift

The Rammey Island Scout Campsite, in Waltham Abbey, has been significantly improved after Selco Builders Warehouse stepped in with £1,000 worth of materials for the renovation project. The campsite hut had been left untouched for 60 years and was in desperate need of attention.

Thanks to Selco’s help, a number of improvements were made, including roof renovation, guttering, painting, insulation, electrics, flooring and work to the kitchen. The materials donation came from Selco’s Tottenham branch on White Hart Lane.

Artene Ghambary, leader of 4th Wood Green Scouts in Tottenham, said: “Everyone is over the moon with this incredibly generous donation. This campsite really needed to be brought up to standard as a lot of children use it as a way to experience new things. A disabled Scout group also use it, so it was vital that it was brought up to a level suitable for them. There were parts of the hut which hadn’t been touched for six decades. We’re entirely reliant on donations, so Selco’s help made a huge difference.”

Marc Jones, branch manager at Selco Tottenham, said: “It’s a pleasure to be able to help the local Scout groups with these materials. I visited the campsite and it was clear that it required urgent work. I hope children continue to visit the site for many years to come.”
