    “Refreshment sales help the Explorer Scouts’ fundraising efforts and all other monies raised benefit the NGS charities.

    “Did you know that NGS is the biggest single donor to both Macmillan and Marie Curie? Other major beneficiaries last year were Maggies and Hospice UK.

    “To sum up, there will be tea, cake, a plant stall and flowers – what’s not to like?”
