Beavers raise cash for hos­pi­tal

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

YOUNG­STERS have been rais­ing cash to help a spe­cial­ist hos­pi­tal unit.

Whit­tle­sey Beavers mem­bers raised £305 at a col­lec­tion on St Ge­orge’s Day on April 23.

The col­lec­tion was or­gan­ised by the Fen­land District Scouts.

Scout­ing groups pay spe­cial at­ten­tion to mark­ing St Ge­orge’s Day, as he is not only pa­tron saint of Eng­land but of the Scout­ing move­ment as well.

Af­ter count­ing up the cash col­lected, Whit­tle­sey Beavers have now do­nated it to Pap­worth Hos­pi­tal, at Pap­worth Ever­ard, near Cam­bridge.

The cash will go to the hos­pi­tal’s Pul­monary Vas­cu­lar Dis­eases Unit (PVDU), which helps peo­ple with lung con­di­tions.

Pap­worth Hos­pi­tal is one of just six na­tional med­i­cal cen­tres for pul­monary hy­per­ten­sion in Eng­land.
