THANKS: Shoppers help Guide the way


A big thank you to everyone who supported our market stall in Alnwick, on March 14, to help raise funds for our Girlguiding trip to Switzerland this summer.

We made a wonderful £153.90 from the Krispy Kreme Donuts and other activities.

Our thanks, also, to the shopkeepers who have had rabbits in their windows as part of an Easter trail.

The support from local people makes so much difference in helping us provide exciting and challenging opportunities for the Guides and Rangers we are taking to Switzerland.

Our thanks, too, to the staff at Willowburn Sports Centre for providing a venue and lifeguard cover for our Brownie and Guide swimming gala earlier this month.

Apart from the fun the girls had, the raffle raised £75 for Water Aid.

Guide and Brownie Guider
