The 4th Uttoxeter Brownies were delighted to host a visit from representatives of Heath Big Local on Tuesday 12th July to receive a cheque for almost £400.
The cheque was very gratefully received by the Brownies, a number of whom live or go to school in the Heath Ward. It will enable a number of giant games to be purchased that can be used both indoors and outdoors for the Brownies to play with. These will provide the opportunity for the Brownies to have a lot of fun, whilst honing their social skills, improving their self-confidence and their co-ordination.
The rest of the money will be used to purchase sleeping bags, sleeping bag liners and bed rolls, which should make the prospect of funding Brownie holidays less daunting for parents. They will be used for the first time in September when eight members from the Brownie Unit, accompanied by two of their leaders will be attending a ‘Strictly Sparkly Sleepover’ with approximately three hundred other Brownies in Blackpool.
4th Uttoxeter Brownies would like to thank the Heath Big Local for their generosity.
