In April one of the silly targets John Baxter set himself during lockdown was to attempt to grow a beard (for the first time). It occurred to him that such stupidity might attract sponsorship for the Health Hub and he started to seek support.
The good news is that John’s beard is growing and he has raised £255 for the Health Hub so far. He set himself a target of C £300, but was aware that “most of his mates on the list had already contributed to the original appeal.
During this difficult time, I am delighted to report that the Scouts have continued with their Scouting activities from home.
