Local Scouts Group get digging for the Hospice

 The 20th Finchley Cub Scout group from the Woodside Park Synagogue visited North London Hospice last month, to plant trees and learn about the work of the Hospice. The visit coincided with the Jewish festival of Tu B’Shevat, a day that marks the beginning of a new year for trees. The group planted some bayleaf trees as a celebration of plants and nature and to help the Hospice make their garden a peaceful place for residents to spend time in. They also raised £105 for the Hospice. Debra Morris, group scout leader said: “The Cubs thoroughly enjoyed planting the trees. They are working towards their Global Conservation badge which is helping them to understand how important our environment is. The Cubs could see how their work in the garden helped improve the patients’ quality of life.” Debra thanked the Hospice staff for allowing the 26 boys, aged between eight and 10 years, to work with them adding, “It is important for us at 20th Finchley to maintain close links with the local community.” Robin Langrishe, director of fundraising said: “We would like to say a big thank you the 20th Finchley Cub Scout group for choosing to support the Hospice. We hugely rely on the support of our local community and couldn’t provide the service we do without their help and continual support.”
