Beavers from across the Ripley and Heanor scouting district have helped to brighten up Christmas for those in hospital on Christmas Day. At St James Church in Codnor, Beavers and leaders from Codnor, Sitwell, Erewash, Loscoe and Ripley took part in a toy service where the Beavers acted out the story of Christmas with hand puppets and sang some Christmas carols. In total, 68 presents were donated to Royal Derby Hospital and will be given out to the children on the wards.
