A successful night at the (Pig) Races!

After some last minute course design by a Group of our Scouts on Thursday evening, and some intensive Pig training / running down of batteries on Friday, Saturday 8th March approached for our first Pig Race night.

Around 50 members of all sections from the group, plus various other supporters attended Thornton Cricket Club for a night of laughter, the occasional false start and some all important fundraising!

Whilst never intended to be a huge fundraiser, more of a social event for parents, leaders and youth members, we were delighted to raise around £210 during the evening, although we did in addition cover around £100 set-up cost of investing in the equipment which will soon be available for hire and will of course be able to be used by the group in the future.

Many thanks to all who attended or sponsored – we appreciate your support!
