Please remember that during this weekend’s events the Associations Charity of the Year will be raising money. The charity is West Sussex County Scouts expedition to Uganda as they are sending a contingent of 29 people there in 2017. Whilst the trip will benefit our local young people from all over Sussex, it will also benefit the people of Uganda as the trip will involve building a school kitchen. Attached is a photo of the current kitchen where one lady cooks meals for around 200 pupils every day.

Each person is raising in the region of £2,000 to get themselves there, with the materials for the kitchen build costing in the region of £10,000. To raise funds the 22 Explorer Scouts will be cycling and rowing the 6,219 miles from here to Uganda over 48 hours from 6pm Friday. Just a few pence per mile from each member business will help them to raise the required funds.

If you would like to make a donation then please visit https://mydonate.bt.com/events/ugcycle/320571 or look out for them at The Orchards and Victoria Park over the weekend.

Your fellow members Linear Health & Fitness are providing the equipment and Aquapax have donated water.
