Wrexham Scouts are set to help out their local community by cleaning windows at the Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

As part of the national Scout Community Week which takes place from the 3rd to the 9th June, youngsters will be helping out with several projects including the one at the Maelor, helping Keep Wales Tidy with Himalayan Balsam clearance, and helping out North Wales Police.

David Morris from the Scouts works at the Maelor Hospital and thought up the window cleaning project: “My job takes me out and about in the hospital and I noticed the windows were a bit dirty. I contacted management who were only too happy for the Scouts to help out give the place a spring clean.

“We’ll be concentrating on the ground floor windows on the main corridor so we don’t effect patient care. Groups across the District have been really keen to get involved.”

The Scouts are looking for cleaning materials to help complete the window cleaning. David added: “We’re asking if any companies in Wrexham could donate sponges, cleaning fluids, and importantly squeegees and extendable poles so younger Beaver Scouts can reach the windows, or even give us a donation so we can purchase this equipment.

“We’re also asking for the general public to sponsor us. We’ll be collecting at the hospital main entrance and online at mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/wrexhamscoutscommunityweek. All money raised will go to support local Scouting with a proportion going to support UK-wide projects to bring Scouting to disadvantaged groups.”

If anyone can help with cleaning materials, they can contact David Morris on 07779 272340 or email [email protected]
