She was sponsored for the trust as well as another charity and has raised £1144.20.

A very generous £258 was donated to the trust. Thank you to all the scout group at St Andrew's Church Kettering for making us so welcome at their AGM when they presented us with the collective cheque. Thanks so much to Kirsty for being such an active fundraiser.

Karen, a fellow scouter from Corby, who took part in Andi's Scout Guard of Honour, has recently celebrated her birthday with a big '0' party.

She raised £420 to continue Andi's good work. Thank you so much for your generosity Karen.
