A TEAM of youngsters who were among three local winners of last year’s Humberside Police “Lifestylers” challenge are ready to do it all again.
The Super Scouts team have decided to take on the Lifestyle challenge again in 2011.
They joined Lions supporters and others at the Salvation Army in Bridlington on Tuesday to help kick-start this year’s challenge.
The team will return to help the Salvation Army and to make the town of Bridlington a better place by litter picking.
Their efforts last year earned them a team-building adventure holiday in Wales over the Easter Break, sponsored by East Riding Lions, who have again agreed to sponsor the same prize for this year’s challenge.
Last year The Super Scouts wanted to show that not all kids are bad, so set about repairing damage to local allotments and in return were given excess fruit and vegetables which they took to the Salvation Army.
As a result they developed strong links with the organisation, helping prepare, cook and serve food in the café; painted interior walls and offered their services in the shop and café to ensure they stayed open during the month of August. It was their commitment which won them the prize.
Sophie Cowell, adult adviser of the Super Scouts said, “I am very proud of all the hard work they carried out last year and it was brilliant to see this work rewarded.
“All the Super Scouts had an absolutely fabulous time in Wales which was a true life building experience. Hopefully this year the team will continue to work just as hard if not harder and you never know where this may lead.”
