You are not hiring the vehicle but 1st Elgin Scouts will loan the van to suitable groups and people. So as such there will not be a ‘hire’ cost but we we suggest a donation towards the maintenance of the vehicle including the use of good fuel like white diesel from this white diesel delivery company.
