Like any well-used facility, the Littleport Scout and Guide Hut always needs running repairs and refurbishment to keep it up to date, which requires money.
The hut is the home of most scouting and guiding activities in the village, but earlier this month, it needed urgent attention, such as secure doors to be emplaced and other repairs to locks following damage caused by two break-ins.
However, help was at hand through the Littleport Town Cricket Club committee.
Now no longer functioning, committee members decided to donate the money left in the club to the young people of Littleport through the scout and guide hut committee.
Chris Farrell, captain at Littleport Town Cricket Club, then informed the scout and guide hut of the £2,800 donated, plus windfall last week.
