Teams out to coin in funds
People in Hamstreet and Ruckinge have been hoarding 2p coins over the past few months, ready for Tuppenny Trail Day.
The event will see two teams from Ruckinge and Hamstreet Scouts and Guides, the Tuppenny Tigers and the Ruckinge Roosters, competing to create two long lines of coins and raise funds on Saturday, July 13, between 10am and noon, outside Hamstreet Victory Hall.
Everyone is invited to come along and add their coins. Tea and coffee will be available.
Margaret Hanlon, of the parents’ group, said: “The Scouting movement does such an excellent job in helping youngsters to grow into good citizens. It’s been rewarding to see how many people have saved their 2p coins.”
