More than 180 Beavers from Bury St Edmunds and surrounding areas slipped on their pyjamas, fluffy bunny ears and wellies for a ‘Beavers Night Out’ walk in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care.
The Beaver Scouts from Lakenheath, Horringer, Honington, Red Lodge, Gt Barton and Ixworth, recreated their own version of the hospice's Girls Night Out Walk and took part in a two-mile walk around Nowton Park in Bury St Edmunds.
Lucinda Wade, scout leader, 6th Bury St Edmunds St Mary's Scout Group said:
"I was so proud of the Beavers who came up with the idea of a Beavers Night Out and the rain didn't put them off the walk.
"It was great fun to watch them walking through the park with their flashing bunny ears on."

"I would also like to thank the scout leaders, family members and friends who joined us on the night."
