Community defibrillator bagged up by the Co-op
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.”
