WD-40 seeks Scouting skills WD-40, the multi-use product, has announced a nationwide competition to support its sponsorship of the DIY Activity Badge with a cash prize for the winning Troop
cout Groups are invited to tell WD-40 how they have used their DIY and Scouting skills to make a difference to their community. It could be cleaning up a local park, a litter pick or redecorating and freshening up a community centre or Scout hut. The winning group will be awarded £500 to use for equipment, materials or resources for their group. WD-40’s senior brand manager, Neil Gow, says: ‘We know there are many Scout Groups up and down the country that are making a big difference in their community using their Scouting and DIY skills to help others. We want to celebrate those good examples and reward the young people for their efforts.’
Scout groups wishing to enter the competition can email WD40@connect-group.com or call 01902 714957 to explain their clean up or community project. Entries will be hosted online at wd40Scouts.blogspot.com and all entries received will receive a WD-40 goodie bag for their Group.
