Henfield Cubs are getting behind the Building Appeal and organising their own events. Young Cub Sam Hartwell began the trend by doing a 1km sponsored swim and raising £120 to raise funds for the proposed Centre, an absolutely marvellous effort… very well done Sam!
Sam’s swim inspired another Cub, Emily Hilton, to propose holding a Cake Sale and Jumble at the Scout Hut during Henfield’s “Great Get Together”. Emily got involved on the day of the sale, along with other Cubs, Scouts and Beavers, and the sale raised £195, which for an impromtu event is a brilliant result! Keep coming up with the ideas Emily:)
Cub Harry Pritchard from Shermanbury then held a small raffle amongst his neighbours which netted £11.10p profit, an excellent outcome for a totally solo effort from a young lad who wants to see this project succeed.
Truly wonderful efforts and ingenuity displayed by all three youngsters… if EVERY member of the Group emulated these three youngsters, just imagine what could be achieved…..
