15 foot snowman erected for charity

13th January 2010
By Scott McCarthy

Snow - it's a bugger isn't it? It brings the British transport system to a halt, it encourages young hoodlums to throw snowballs at passing cars, and it results in people (usually women or the elderly) slipping over and injuring themselves. However, all of that pales into comparison to the positives it can bring - namely, the construction by a group of Burgess Hillians of a 15 foot 2 inches tall snowman.

Lewis Trower, Luke Hillwood and Neil Maunick began the task as three friends merely attempting to construct a ridiculously big snowman. Interest in the project soon grew though, and it eventually snowballed into a charity event that saw 14 other people join in over the six-day period to complete the beast.

Those wanting to help construct the snowman were asked to donate £1 for the honour of helping with the task, with all money raised going to the St Peter and St James' Hospice at Wivelsfield.

As of January 13th, £181 had been gathered in the appeal; with the organisers hoping that £250 in total will be raised by the residents of Burgess Hill in appreciation of the construction of what is probably the biggest snowman in the towns history.

For those wishing to donate to the cause, you can do so on-line via: http://www.justgiving.com/project-snowman2010.
There is also a Facebook group about the construction, available at: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#/group.php?v=info&gid=277161347872
