Com­mu­nity de­fib­ril­la­tor bagged up by the Co-op

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

THE ju­nior ver­sion of the Li­ons club has cooked up a healthy profit to help out pigs in the wood.

Denby Dale Leos, sup­ported by the Li­ons, baked Hal­loween-themed cakes in aid of the com­mu­nity project.

The re­cently-formed group held their first bake-off at the Methodist Church in Denby Dale.

Twelve cakes with a Hal­loween theme were judged by lo­cal baker, Steve Harper, and auc­tioned at the event.

The young­sters raised £162 in aid of the ‘Pigs in the Wood’ – a small hold­ing of hogs at Scis­sett woods that lets peo­ple feed, care for and in­ter­act with the pigs.

Visi­tors also go on walks with the pigs and even have pic­nics with them.

Ja­clyn Hag­gata, from Pigs in the Wood, said the cash would be put to good use.

She said: “All the Leos did an amaz­ing job of rais­ing the money. It will be put to good use by re­in­forc­ing and re­pair­ing the pig shel­ters.”

The Leos’ ef­forts also raised a fur­ther £150 for their own funds. place a huge fo­cus on mak­ing a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the com­mu­ni­ties in which we trade.

“We are de­lighted to be able to build on our ex­ist­ing work with this new project which we are fund­ing from the car­rier bag levy.

“It’s vi­tally im­por­tant.”
