Cubs go the extra mile for appeal

BIG-HEARTED boys from the 1st Connah’s Quay Cherokee Cub Scouts enjoyed a successful fundraising weekend for the Chronicle’s Peter McFerran Appeal.Š

They began with a Hallowe’en Party and visited the Imperial War Museum in Manchester.

The Cubs also visited the Salvation Army in Connah’s Quay and after the 12 boys took part in the morning service, they walked eight miles to McDonald’s on the Greyhound Park in Chester along the cycle route.Š

Peter’s mum, Ann McFerran, who is assistant leader of the Cherokee Cubs, said: “Thanks to the Cub’s support and the generosity of the parents and friends we have, so far, managed to raise another £170 for the incubator appeal.”

Further appeal funds have been raised by the grandmother of Peter McFerran. Noreen Barham, of Dee Road in Connah’s Quay, held a coffee morning at her home and raised £68.22.

And a boxing night held earlier this month in aid of the appeal raised a knockout sum of £1,340

The event, organised by Shotton ABC and Connah’s Quay firm Jimsul Construction, took place at Connah’s Quay Civic Hall.
