A group of young people hoping to head to an international event in Japan had a most successful fundraising day in Hassocks.

Members of First Lindfield Scouts raised over £300 towards their trip to the 23rd World Jamboree during a charity weekend at South Downs Nurseries.

The weekend included face-painting, chopsticks games, origami and a raffle.

“We were delighted to be able to assist these young people”, said Mark Hillyard, General Manager of the Brighton Road garden centre, “and help them with their journey of a lifetime to the other side of the world. They were excellent ambassadors.”
