Kyle Leaders and Explorer Scouts assist Glasgow Disabled Scouts

2 Leaders and 2 Explorer Scouts from Kyle district recently helped out in the 2005 Glasgow Disabled Scout Summer Camp at Auchengillan.

There were just over 100 at the camp, including 30 wheel chair users.

The Glasgow Disabled Scouts are always looking for helpers, both for their weekly meetings and at their camps. There are a number of Ayrshire Leaders and Explorers who do help when ever possible at the weekly meetings as well as the camps. If you would be interested in helping out this great cause have a look at their website or contact them at info@glasgowdisabledscouts.org
