AS the owner of a rescue dog, local scout leader Michael Crawley decided to help LSPCA to gain the special scouting badge marking the 100th anniversary of Scouting Ireland.

The challenge was to do something which involved a century and Michael decided to make 100 woggles (scarf ties) and sell them to scouts past and present.

'I collected old belts, shoes and handbags and used the material to make the woggles which I then sold to scouts, former scouts, and girl guides.'

'I'm good with my hands and made them in the kitchen while watching tv,' said Micheal who is a member of the 1st/2nd/5th Louth.

Michael has been involved with the scouts since he joined in 1955.

After taking a break for a few years, he became active again when he helped set up the 5th Louth cubs in 1979.
