Somercotes Beavers And Cubs
Celebrate Red Nose Day
by Parish Council on Tuesday 28 June 2011

On 18th March this year the Somercotes Beavers and Cubs held a fun charity night at Somercotes Parish Hall, with squidgy food games, all with a red theme, including a baked bean count and red noses in jelly challenge (tomatoes in red jelly) along with other games.  They also had a big bake of decorated cakes and biscuits with Red Nose faces to sell to family and friends in aid of Red Nose Day.  They raised £300 for Red Nose Day, and £100 for Children in Need.


Balloon Race

The Cubs and Beavers also held a ‘Red Nose Great Balloon Race’, and amazingly they received a tag from a balloon which landed in Germany! 

Mrs Monika Lantzerath of Swisttal-Strassfeld, which is North Rhine, Westphalia, found the balloon in a field near her home, and returned the tag together with a postcard  marking the spot where the balloon was found. That’s quite a distance for a balloon to travel.
