As part of the Uganda 2000 appeal aimed at helping to develop Scouting in Uganda, Scout Shops Limited. has donated 2,000,000 worth of much needed equipment and uniforms. The loading of a container which held 200 tents, 265 rucsacs and 90 sleeping bags as well as old style Scout and Guide uniforms, was overseen by Members of the Uganda 2000 team. Elspeth Eggleton from Uganda 2000 said, 'this donation wilt make a terrific difference to Scouts in Uganda who will be really appreciative of this generosity'. This donation is in addition to the thousands of scarves that have been collected by local Scout Groups and placed in the Uganda 2000 Appeal collection boxes in all branches of Scout Shops Ltd. The container will also be taking much needed educational materials to Uganda. David Markwell, Scout Shops Limited's Managing Director said, 'We are delighted to have been of so much help to Uganda 2000 appeal and are pleased to have been able to contribute to the world-wide development of Scouting'.
