The Ashmore Scout Group are jumping for joy after they managed to secure a $2000 donation from the Sunshine Automotive Community Fund.
The local community group beat out 64 other local groups in the running for the cash, after they secured the highest number of votes in the May round on the myGC.com.au website.
On Friday some members of the group were on hand to receive the giant cheque at Sunshine Automotive’s Ford dealership.

Ashmore Scout Group representative Steven Kennedy told myGC the club was so excited to be announced as the May winner. “It means so much. We are probably going to buy some new gear such as tents, porta-shades, spare tent pegs (the scouts are always losing those) and some other gear for the kids.
“Thank you so much to Sunshine Automotive, we really appreciate your help,” he said.
Voting is now open for the June round of the Sunshine Automotive Community Fund.
