IT may have been a few days late, but the youngsters from the First Wymering Boys and Girls Brigade didn’t want to miss out on taking part in this year’s Blue Day.
The group based at the Wymering Methodist Church in Cosham, dressed in blue, played games and sold cakes on Tuesday evening – just as hundreds of people across the city did to mark our Blue Day fundraiser on Friday.
The group, whose members are aged between four and 20, raised a total of £179.
Beryl Feben, youth team worker, said: ‘We had a really lovely evening. We had a member of our family that died of cancer and I just thought this was a brilliant thing to do’
All the money raised goes to the Tom Prince Cancer Trust – a charity set up in memory of teenager Tom, who died of bone cancer osteosarcoma. To make a donation, take all cheques or cash (bagged up) raised to any Lloyds TSB branch.
