Burnham-On-Sea Cubs collect coins for local good cause

Burnham-On-Sea's Kingfisher Cub Pack have turned pennies into pounds by collecting coins for a local good cause.

The youngsters have collected hundreds of 1p and 2p coins in aid of the Freewheelers Emergency Blood Bikes this term.

Giles Prewett, Cub Scout Leader, told the children lined up all the coins to see whether they would go round the scout hut.

"They all did a fantastic job and have raised an estimated total of £64.46. The lined up pennies went five times the length of our hall measuring 87.6 metres!"

He added: "We thank all our cubs for their hard work and achievement for fundraising for such a good cause."
