BROMLEY Scouts have raised over £100,000 for local charities by bag-packing at Sainsbury's.
For the last 15 years scouts as young as eight have been helping out at the supermarket in Walters Yard.
In total they have packed bags for 105 days and 10,829 hours, raising a total of £102,801.
The money has been donated to a number of local causes, including St Christopher's Hospice, Demelza South East London, Deaf Access and JusB.
Jill Bachem, customer service manager at Sainsbury's, Walters Yard, said: "Our customers love having them here - and they have raised an impressive amount of money.
"They are very well organised and we have a great relationship with them."
