EAST Tilbury Scout Group spread some Christmas cheer when they took their sleigh around their local area recently to raise some funds. The sleigh visited East and West Tilbury, Linford and Chadwell and the children all had a great time meeting Santa and his helpers and having their photo taken.
“This year Santa was asked to get off the sleigh and visit two sick people. One was a lady who was dying and it would be her last Christmas, the other one a man who had just had a stroke. Both the families were very grateful and very pleased” said Richard Scruby, the Group’s lead volunteer.
The Group raised nearly Â£1900 during the evening which will allow the group to provide more fun activities to the young people of East Tilbury.
