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 Burnham-On-Sea.com 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."
