Studley Cub Scouts up for crisp packet fundraising and recycling drive

Ross Crawford 27th Mar, 2019 Updated: 28th Mar, 2019

STUDLEY Cub Scouts are aiming to earn a packet from the humble crisp packet.

The youngsters have signed up to the crisp packet fundraising and recycling scheme through TerraCycle.

For every kilogram of empty crisp packets collected Studley Cub Scouts will receive £2 which will go towards keeping camp costs down.

To help launch this scheme Caney’s Cider and Bottle Shop on Studley High Street has agreed to be their first public collection point.

All people need to do is save their empty packets and then drop them in at the collection point.

Group Scout Leader, Karen Marshall said: “I’m delighted the Cubs have chosen to help the village recycle their crisp packets, anything we can do to stop landfill and plastic in the seas has to be a good thing.”

Any organisation willing to help by registering as a collection point should email studley@westwarwickshire.org.uk
