Cubs raise £4,030 in their Centenary Year

The Cubs and their leaders raised £4,030 for the Appeal fund in their Centenary Year. WOW… what a wonderful effort!
By taking part in sponsored swims, cycle rides, cake sales, toy sales, running 1 mile each day, a mass sponsored silence and a whole load more, these “Cracking Cubs” have laid down a challenge to the Scout Troops and Explorer section to better their effort.
Thanks kids, we’re proud of all that you are doing!

£1,140 was raised on 5th & 6th January 2019 by recycling Christmas trees. 220 trees were collected from Henfield, Steyning, Partridge Green and Cowfold by Henfield B-P Guildsmen, ably assisted by Melissa and Barry Hobden, owners of Henfield Fencing. A massive vote of thanks goes to Andy Warren of Downs (Southern Ltd), builder Tony Westwood and Melissa and Barry for supplying four vehicles free of charge.
On Sunday, Burleys’ employee Alec Flower brought along a truck and chipper along with two friends and chipped all of the trees for the Appeal. A much appreciated, amazing effort by everyone that took part!
