Little beavers have been keeping quiet to raise funds for charity.

Six young members of 2nd Stamford Beavers held a sponsored silence and raised more than £150 for the NSPCC.

Beaver leader Margaret Scott said: “It was a very good effort to raise that much when there was only six of them.

“They kept quiet for 20 minutes which is quite a long time for six-year-olds.

“It’s nice for the children to be able to help those less fortunate.”

Margaret, 66, from Pinfold Lane, Stamford, is stepping down as 2nd Stamford scout leader after 24 years with the group.

She is now hoping for someone to come forward and fill her shoes.

Margaret added: “It’s a lovely job supporting the little ones but I’ve decided it’s time to put my feet up and retire. It’s time for someone else to come forward.”
