Teams out to coin in funds

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

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.”
