This year it has not be possible to arrange an evening meeting when we traditionally distribute the monies raise from the Carol Float.
Some £8,500 was collected this year, £2,000 more than usual which was tremendous achievement especially considering the difficulties associated with the Covid pandemic.
Those Charities, that have helped with collections, each received a donation. They were the Alzheimer’s Society, 1st Bedgrove Scouts, 1st Aylesbury Guides, Explorer Scouts, Gateway, Heart of Bucks, Lindengate, Medical Detection Dogs, Motor Neurone Disease, National Paralympic Heritage Trust, Scannappeal, Wheelpower and Wing Scouts.
The larger sum raised has allowed us to give donations to three Aylesbury Foodbanks: The Vineyard, Southcourt Baptist Church and The Thrussell Trust.
