BEAVER Scouts in Royston put their minds to the test - and raised £600 for the charity Children with Leukaemia.

Nineteen Beavers aged from six to eight years old, completed 26 jigsaw puzzles in 45 minutes, in fancy dress, to help raise money for the charity.

The number of puzzles represented the 26 miles a marathon runner must complete.

Last year, the Beaver group completed 26 laps of the Scout hall and raised £400 for charity.

Nicola Newsome, leader of the Royston Beavers, said: "I am really proud of all the children that took part.

"They completed a number of puzzles, including giant floor-sized ones and 100-piece ones. They did extremely well and they all looked fantastic.
