Brownies pledge to support CancerCare!
Ashleigh and Isabelle Pritchard from Heysham Brownies (pictured with mum Hayley) have chosen to support CancerCare as part of completing their Guiding is Kind Badge. The girls are raising money by doing a raffle and collecting loose change and Ashleigh is also holding a special teddy bear sale.
As part of their badge they also need to write a letter to a charity so we are eagerly checking our postbox every day!
Brownie and Rainbow Leader Lesley Oldfield-Whalley said: “I have been so impressed with Isabelle's and Ashleigh's efforts for their charities and Guiding is Kind badges. They have shown a real flair for fundraising, playing a big part in raffles and tombola. Isabelle has researched and chosen the charities to support for her charities badge. I am very proud of their compassion and perseverance. Well done Isabelle and Ashleigh!”
The family are also really looking forward to taking part in our famous Santa Dash again this year. It might not look quite the same this Christmas but we’ve got some exciting “virtual” plans for it which we’ll be announcing shortly so keep checking our social media/website for details!
