Red Nose Day fun for new Cubs

Posted Thu 26th March 2009 at 09:10

Alderney's Cubs got into the fund raising spirit on Red Nose Day.

Various competitions and a quiz at St Anne's School meant the boys raised a total of 135 for Comic Relief.

The evening was also special for six new Cubs, Rory Whalley, Aaron Frost, Louis Street, Christopher Neale, Harry Craig and Elliot Barras, who were all invested on the night.

Annabel Finding said: "The Cubs met on Red Nose Day for a very special evening to invest six new Cubs.

"All the parents and families were invited and we had a fun-filled evening with Red Nose Day competitions, cake stalls, competitions and a very noisy quiz.

"We were delighted to raise 135, which is enough to buy 27 mosquito nets to protect African children from malarial mosquitos. The number means we have each donated something as it is one from every Cub and adult helper."

Annabel thanked everyone for turning up and helping to raise cash for a good cause.

She said: "A big thank you to everybody who contributed both money and time to making the evening a big success and well done Cubs for helping others in need."

The Cubs' next charity event is a jumble sale at the Island Hall on April 25. All the money raised from the day will be donated to the Scout hut fund and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

Annabel went on to reveal that Denise English is hoping to start a Beaver colony after Easter and that anyone aged six to eight who would like to join should watch out for posters in the schools and around town.

Anyone interested in joining the Beavers or who would like to help set up a Scout group should contact Annabel on 824623.
