Scouts feel the burn in fund-rais­ing ef­fort

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - JUNCTION 10 -

SCOUTS were joined by their lead­ers and par­ents for a spon­sored aer­o­bics ses­sion. About 20 ex­er­cise novices and en­thu­si­asts jumped around for more than an hour to raise money for the 6th Ash­ford Scouts. The event, at the Scout hut off Jem­mett Road, was or­gan­ised by Deb­bie Hill, Vikki Perry and Nikki Turner and the aer­o­bathon was led by pro­fes­sional in­struc­tor Sylvia Carey. Or­gan­iser Deb­bie Hill’s eightyear-old son, Mikey Satchell, is a Cub. She said: “We were thrilled with the way it went. We were in ab­so­lute hys­ter­ics with what some peo­ple were wear­ing and would like to say a huge thank you to ev­ery­one who took part.” The Bar­clays Com­mit­ted to the Com­mu­nity pro­gramme agreed to match all fund­ing, tak­ing the to­tal raised to £1,600. In­struc­tor Sylvia Carey of Fit­ness Foun­da­tions has said that from ev­ery­one who goes to her for a lifestyle anal­y­sis, she will do­nate the £10 fee to the Scouts.
