Hospice benefits from Brownies’ fundraising
11:14am Thursday 17th April 2014 in Local news
Brownies rallied round to raise money for a cause close to their hearts.
The 2nd Rawdon Trinity Brownies used their annual fundraising campaign to helped Martin House Hospice, where the sister of one of their members received terminal care.
Lucy Otway, whose sister Emily was cared for at the hospice, presented the cheque for £1,176.
The girls were asked to vote on fundraising events and the top three were chosen.
They started with a cake stall at church after parade, followed by a sponsored skip and a coffee morning in November where some of the Brownies had made their own gifts to sell.
Organisers said the events were well supported by parents, friends and members of the Church.
