SCOUTS, Cubs and Beavers from the St Leonard’s Langho Scout Group raised £320 for Child Action Northwest with a wet welly walk.

The youngsters and their families walked three-and-a-half miles to raise the money and afterwards enjoyed a well-earned had a sausage sizzle provided by Farmfields Fresh Foods and Warbutons Bakery.

Beaver Leader Lynne Harrison said: “We had an excellent turnout and despite the last minute route change and muddy conditions, everyone enjoyed the walk. The boys did the group proud for an important cause.”

In addition to the sponsorship money raised by the walkers, Q Crane and Plant Hire and Johnson Matthey of Clitheroe each donated £100.

Harriet Roberts, of Wilpshire-based Child Action Northwest, said: “It was wonderful to see all the young people setting off on their walk to raise money for our charity and we are delighted with the support from the local business community. What a fantastic amount. Well done and thank you to St Leonard’s Langho Scout Group.”

The money will be presented to the charity later in the year at the group’s AGM.
