Police funds help scouts with woggles.

A GROUP of scouts have been given a helping hand by police for a special stage performance.

The Tynemouth Scouts, who put on their Gang Show at Whitley Bay Playhouse, received 165 neckerchiefs and 220 woggles from the Northumbria Police Charities Fund.

The group, who have been presenting gang shows in North Tyneside since 1947, had asked the fund for help in supplying their new members with the items.

Sarah Dodds, the police charity's trustee, said: "We were pleased to help out Tynemouth Scouts by buying neckerchiefs and woggles for this year's Gang Show. "Scouting provides lots of fun, challenges and adventures and is an excellent place for young people of all ages to meet new friends in a safe environment."

Michael Dale, scout leader with the 3rd Tynemouth group, added: "The coveted red neckerchief with a gold GS on the back is only awarded to Gang Shows judged to be of the highest standard.

"Once awarded, the show's cast and crew wear it in place of their own group neckerchief."
