There was an exciting night for Scamp, the Sandal Community Association's skydiving teddy, when he recently presented £400 to Nicky Fox, community fundraiser for Forget Me Not Children's Hospice. Scamp even got into the Christmas spirit with a festive collar!

Both SCA chairman Les Goddard (second from left) and Scamp are pictured here handing over a bumper cheque to Nicky at Wakefield Rotary Club's meeting at the New Brookhouse Club at Busy Corner. The cheque was for £700, to include an additional £300 raised by the Rotary Club.

Also in the picture are Rotary Club Secretary Peter Clarke, President-Elect Sheila Wainwright and President Neale Clark.

Scamp's skydive raised a total of £800, shared equally between the Forget Me Not hospice and Wakefield Hospice.
