ON the 12th day of Christmas TV star Brendan Sheerin gave a Scarborough Guide group this jumper.

And the Fifth Scarborough Wreyfielders are raffling it to raise cash to send two of their members to Mexico.

Fifteen-year-old Kacey Dale and Shay Hartley are going to Mexico City for two weeks to work in the community in August. They have yet to raise £1,900 of the £4,000 needed.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for them,” said Guide leader Gill Armstrong. “We have held lots of events to raise the money and plan more in the new year,” she said.

The Coach Trip presenter, who used to work at the Spa and lived in the town, will be back on Channel 4 with the reality show on January 12.

Sealed bids for his jumper can be dropped off at the Scarborough Evening News offices at 17-22 Aberdeen Walk until noon on Friday December 23 when they will be passed on to Gill. Please mark them for the attention of deputy editor Sue Wilkinson.
