THE Nashville Scout troop is assured of sleeping dry during its next outdoor adventure thanks to a generous donation from Specsavers Gympie.

Optometrist Graeme Smith and the team at Specsavers Gympie recently joined Kerrin Robinson, store co-owner and dispensing director, in presenting four six-man tents to the troop.

Ms Robinson said the tents, which were a vital part of the Scout's outdoor activities, would be enjoyed by the entire troop, from the young Joeys to the Rovers.

"The Nashville Scout troop does such a wonderful job in giving children so many great outdoor experiences and we are thrilled to support them with this donation," she said.

"We appreciate that getting to know the great outdoors is such an important part of childhood and it is great to know that a whole generation of local kids will now be safe and dry during their camping expeditions.

"The team and I were so impressed with the generosity of the local community during our fundraising campaign. This really reflects how highly regarded the Scout movement is in our area and how important it is to local families that the troop is well resourced."

Ms Robinson was assured the tents would be put to good use by the troop.

"We are sure the whole troop will have a wonderful time using the new tents during their various outdoor adventures," she said.
