Canvey Sea Scouts are on their way to replacing four boats destroyed by vandals.
Firebugs recently set light to two sailing boats, a dingy and tender belonging to the scouts at Tewkes Creek, Canvey.
Now the 4th Canvey Sea Scouts are pulling out all the stops to replace the boats.
A jumble sale boosted scout group funds by more than £80.
Group scout leader Mr Alan Evans said: “The jumble sale st the War Memorial Hall attracted about 140 people. We have had better in the past, but it was, nevertheless, a success.”
The proceeds will be shared between camping equipment maintenance and replacing the boats.
