1st Chorleywood Scouts raise £1,400 in cycle ride
10:27am Friday 21st September 2012 in News
A team of 42 Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from Chorleywood took part in an annual sponsored cycle ride.
The children, from 1st Chorleywood Scouts, took part in the ride on Sunday, completing 808 laps and raising £1,400.
Beaver Scout Alistair Jenkins completed 20 laps having only been off stabilizers for two weeks.
Jane Broadis, leader, said: "It was a great event and the weather was perfect for sitting out and counting the girls' and boys' laps.
"A number of parents stayed to help and spectate. As volunteers in the Scouting Association it is encouraging to have a really active and supportive parent community."
The group is currently raising money to help pay for improvements to its Scout hut, including new insulation.
The annual Jumble Sale will take place on Saturday, between 1-3pm at The Junction in Christ Church, in Chorleywood Road.
Ms Broadis added: "We are hoping both the cycle ride and the jumble sale will be big earners for us as we are still some way off being able to refurbish the Scout Hut to an adequate standard."
